Students Should Have a Mandatory Gap Year After High School   

The average high school graduate spends about 14 years of traditional schooling. That means 14 years of studying for rigorous tests and years of staying up late into the night to complete your homework. All of this must seem tiring even thinking about it. A gap year is a great way to spend your year traveling around the world free from stress, building real world relationships outside of school and increased happiness . Good morning, I am James Flynn and I will be discussing the importance of having a gap year after high school.

TRAVELING

Wouldn't you love to go on a mindblowing trip to places like France, Tahiti or even Indonesia. This my friends can all be possible if you take one year from sitting in a classroom all day, studying day in and day out and working late nights trying to pay for your college tuition. Is that really so hard. Out of all students who have been traveling abroad during gap years, 98% of them saw major benefits in mental and physical health. 

RELATIONSHIPS 

Research has proved that 77% of highschoolers do not have time to go out on the weekends. Going out is necessary to build your communication skills. By taking a gap year you can go to friends houses and take time out of your day to study.

JOB FUTURE 

Have you ever wondered what career you're going to take up? Healthcare Professional? Realtor? Or even an entrepreneur? Well a gap year is a great way to find what type of career you're interested in. A gap year can give you a full year to look around for jobs or figure out what you want to major in college, so you don't have to worry about regretting your decision to major in something like business.
