Choose a problem that affects your community in some way: your city, state, or country. Discuss the problem in detail and provide specific statistics and facts that you find from research about the problem you choose to discuss. This should provide information for the first half of your essay. Propose a solution to the problem and provide some research-based information to support your argument; convince your reader that your solution will work. What attempts to solve the problems in the past have been attempted? Did they fail or succeed? Why?
