Dear Editor, I completely agree that this, "Varsity Blue[s]" scandal needs to be put to a stop. The fact that the rich and wealthy were allowed to bribe schools in order to get their child into the school is [unjust]. No longer does hard work seem[s] to be the goal, instead; those who are wealthy get what they want while...

Dear Editor, I agree with your argument about how although, these achievements are beneficial to society, they can be detrimental to our mental health if overused.
