Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good piece of writing which is well written and shows evidence of careful planning in its structure. Effective use of listing and rhetorical questions make it a convincing piece of work. Wide vocabulary nearly always adds to the writing.
However more statistics and proof to back up statements would make this essay more convincing and a more obvious conclusion is needed.
