Homeschooling is better than going to school
Debate Rounds (2)
CON has made a categorical statement; I will show that it is not necessarily so.
First, "better" is a subjective term. 73% of parents who homeschool do so because they are dissatisfied with the public schools 1. In their opinions, homeschooling is better. Parents have the responsibility for the education of their children; it is their opinions that count.
Second, homeschooled kids are not necessarily under-socialized 2. Smart parents make it happen.
Finally, homeschooled kids get more one-on-one attention 3; class size is a non-issue. Also, since parents know their children best, they can easily tailor lesson plans.
CON's absolute claim is not necessarily true.
I would like to thank CON for setting up this debate. I have never done one which such a small character count; it was challenging.
I have shown that CON's original resolution is not necessarily true and CON has agreed with some of my counterpoints, while chosing not to address others.
