I feel MTHS is, “a good place to get an excellent education!” There is a good staff. The facilities are well kept. There is also a wide variety of classes. One reason is that MTHS has a good staff.

Hitler Youth
Hitler Youth Word Count: 835 I thought the most interesting aspect of the Hitler Youth movement was the beginning of it all, when the numbers were small to when the organization held a lot of power. The years 1933-1938 were the most influential of the youth movement. These years determined what the organization would become and how much power they would hold. When Hitler came into power as the German Chancellor in 1933, the Hitler youth was not nearly close to an idea of what it was to become.

Some can define affirmative action as the ability to strive for equality and inclusiveness. Others might see it as a quota-based system for different minority groups. “Affirmative action was originally designed to help minorities” (Gross, 1996).
