Kate.22

Pro

I'm going to argue the point that homeschooling is 'better' than public schooling.
famer

Con

Debating topic: Home-schooling is better than Public
Schooling

I am CON, therefore negating this resolution.

The BOP is on my opponent to prove that homeschooling is better than publich schooling. That means I must prove her wrong, if If needs be, I'll convince the readers that public schooling is even better than homeschooling.

Definitions:

Home-schooling: Being taught from home via your parents

Public schooling: Having education within a school, where
everything taught comes from the government of education.

Better: More beneficial for the majority

Arguments:

1. Public schooling helps you develop your social skills with your classmates.

2. The education from public schooling comes from the government and is a more reliable way to teach students over what parents think is the best way for them to learn.

Over to PRO.

Do you want to challenge me to this topic bossyburrito? I won't be able to do it right now, as I need to have some better knowledge on what homeschooling is and how it works etc.

I'll give you the position Pro Homeschooling if you want to debate me.

Taking an easy win eh Famer? Maybe at some point you should debate me on this! Just because that unfortunate result awhile back occurred, doesn't mean I can't trounce the floor on this one.

RFD: FF results in arguments and conduct to Famer

Reasons for voting decision: It's fairly obvious that Pro's absence and lack of any response whatsoever to Con's response obviously lends Con the unfortunate victory here...
