Pro

Money speaks volumes for today's kids and adults. Creating a college-like atmosphere for elementary, middle-school, and high-school aged children might improve their attendance and grades.

Con

I accept this debate and look forward to seeing what arguments Pro can offer. I hope that standard ground rules apply, including lack of semantical, troll, etc. arguments as well as no new arguments in the last round. That leaves only one constructive round unless Pro wishes the final rounds to be constructive, in which case she will be at a disadvantage.

A couple points of clarification are in order, not that I think it will be consequential to my chances in the debate, but it will affect how I argue. Please answer these at the beginning of your next constructive argument:

Would this system be progressive or flat? ie: would a rich student have a higher tuition than a poor student? Could poorer students get aid or even "full rides" to these schools?

Would these schools still receive funding from federal/gubernatorial institutions? Or would they be fully funded by the students themselves?

Would students still be lawfully obliged to attend school even if they cannot afford the cost? Or could they opt out?

Thank you. Looking forward to a good round.

Con

Pro forfeited, vote Con.

I can't really outline my counter-constructive to this resolution either, for my arguments would be contingent on the answers to my questions.
