Unit 7, writing: opinion essay

Young offenders in the USA sometimes have the choice of going to a boot camp instead of prison. Boot camps involve military discipline and hard labour. Some boot camps, like the one Tanya was sent to, are not part of the legal system, and it is the parents’ decision to make their children join these places.

Are boot camps a good idea? Write an essay giving your opinion.
