[CR] President John McCardell has published a new piece in the “Ideas: Fixing the World” section of the July/August issue of The Atlantic. In his essay, he wrote that our current approach to alcohol education “has been about as effective as a parachute that opens on the second bounce.” If you haven’t had a chance to pick up a hard copy of the magazine, you can read the rest of his essay here.

  1. Edwin Says:

    John McCardell’s approach to solving the problem of alcohol abuse by those aged 18-20 is correct and must be implemented to solve the problem of alcohol abuse by that age group. In addition, the current drinking age encourages alcohol abuse by those 18-20 because it disrespects the age of majority, thus no alcohol education for an alcohol license isn’t provided. Thereby, the drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with the alcohol education program and licensing to instill alcohol responsibility to those 18-20.
