Private education should be the standard form of education .
Debate Rounds (3)
secondly the state education system is more open to manipulations of qualifications than a purely private system .
if all education is of one standard then we stop the entrenchment of class.
�80 billion could be used to pay for 171.4 million people to be taken out of poverty .
which is the better investment 10 million middle class kids or 170 million third world children barely existing in our world ?
private education would be extra-competitive reducing prices and allowing poor children to get an education .the Private education sector already pays for the smart poor children anyways .
PROBLEM: Private education often has inferior teachers and is more money-focused than student-focused. In particular, bullying is worse there.
$80 bil will not bring 170mil kids out of poverty. That's giving them $470 each. Trouble is they'll just spend it on food and shelter, which will cause inflation and make life more unbearable.
Between 1870 and 1893 there was a private system of education in the UK that did not miss anybody out. The system can still be private yet comprehensive in the coverage.
If private education has inferior teachers and provides better results than public schools , imagine what they would do with decent teachers ,including getting rid of an undeserved reputation of bullying.
education is an investment , we need to care about returns .
sorry my bad , �80 billion(not $80 billion ) will keep 170 million people out of poverty as defined by the world bank .
i give way.
If you destroy public schools, good teachers will leave the profession. Less kids in education=smaller pool of good teachers. Vicious cycle. Teachers also often don't like the focus on money there.
Private reputation for bullying is not undeserved, having gone to a private school myself.
Returns for �80 billion is a $2.1 trillion GDP. By removing funding for education you will leave UK children behind.
Giving �470 to 170000000 kids will not bring all of them out of poverty any more than giving them $470 would. Inflation will still increase poverty.
derfe forfeited this round.
