I think there should be no such thing as school. The first reason why is because we should be free to experiment and be creative instead of learning to just do this instead of being creative, then people will be inspired to add something to the world. The second reason is because if there is no school, you can be free to play with freinds and easily run from bullies. The last reason is because, lets face it, kids should be free to play without any limits and rules. Discipline can come last, it grows in your brain as you get older.
When there is no school, there is enough time to experiment and be creative, and enough time to play. That way kids aren't bossed around and they can have a perfect routine. Do you agree?

I suspect a troll, so this should be relatively easy to win.

Rebuttal of Reason One - It is true that sometimes being told exactly what to do limits creativity. However, creativity can be expressed through many means and with many different tools. At school, you learn to use these tools. Creativity is expressed through our imaginations. By giving children tools such as reading, writing, math, science, and art, students learn how to express themselves.

Rebuttal of Reasons Two and Three - Kids should not be allowed to play without any limits and rules. Rules and discipline are what keep society orderly. At school, children receive discipline and learn to be helpful members of society. School is part of what preserves the goodness of society.

I believe that school is the water that helps the seeds that are the youth of today's world grow. Education is one of the most powerful things you can give to someone. Without learning about the world around them, early settlers couldn't have made progress that would eventually lead to modern technology. By teaching the youth of today about our world, we help our world to progress and get better.

“There is no knowledge that is not power.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson


School teaches us the fundamentals of life. School is necessary for us as a society.

There should certainly be no government schools.

Please put further arguments in the section for arguments, not comments.

That's the anecdotal fallacy - one isolated experience does not invalidate an entire viewpoint.

Also, how do you think the settlers learned, they had no choice but to experiment.

Conspiracy, thats true, but one time my child almost got shot by just this really lets just say mean bully. But the teacher thought he was making things up to get him in trouble.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct because Pro forfeited, arguments is shared because Con didn't actually provide his own argument except for a metaphor and an irrelevant allusion to pioneers. S&G was obviously shared. Finally, sources because Con used Emerson for a quote.
