I would argue that the notion of “I am an adult” imposed by school administrators is a mistake that can end in terrible tragedies that, if not controlled, they can lead to a culture of indiscipline.
Future leaders of the country
When university students are labeled as adults, they are overwhelmed. Most of their decisions have dire consequences, including death.
