Free will?

Free will for teens is a bit of wishful thinking. I would suggest...proper education, if available.

Free education

Good professors will instill upon the students to do what's proper on their free will.

Teens are Adults

'Good professors will instill upon the students to do what's proper on their free will.'


I totally agree, I've seen well adjusted teens make appropriate difficult decisions from my experiences in the local public schools. On the other hand, I've seen graduating seniors ready for college act like five year olds.

The problem being is that one size does not fit all when it comes to teens and their aptitude for general chemistry, technical math, music and so on. If it were as simple as a one size fits all solution, then these problems would have been solved and education courses at the universities erradicated. 

For the most part however, teenagers approximately have the same rights and privledges as adults and they want to get out of their parents home as soon as possible. Whether or not they prefer going to see the LSO by themselves or seeing some pop group with their friends is the very least of their problems.

"Free will" and good judgement.

Free will is a very slippery ground for teens, since they cannot develop their judgement ability, at least at a mature level. Impulses are more significant and often prevail...

Education, if available, can protect and guide them.

Education, Of Course.

Parla, how does free will in choosing what you wish to hear contrast with education?

Education and free will.

Education at an early age guides, goofyfoot, forms and even can consolidate the "free will" that comes with maturity (in age as well). In this process, there is no conflict of the will with education. If, however, there is lack of proper education (or education in general), "free will" can easily confront what education could provide.

In the last few years, I have

In the last few years, I have noticed less interest in classical music amongst high school students. (I'm recently retired from teaching). There is still keen interest in other music, and "the charts" do not seem to have the almost numinous interest they once did.

My daughter was driven a little way towards CM by her A level music teacher who often expressed wonderment that people listened to it. This was not a trick to persuade her to listen, he really was uninterested in real music unless he could play drum kit with it. He worked hard to avoid teaching her set works to her.

This comes from Wiki about Skidmore College;

 

In 2013 Skidmore was rated #1 for "Reefer Madness" on the annual Princeton Review school ranking list. Although Skidmore is frequently listed among the top schools for marijuana usage, this was the first time it had taken the top spot.
