Why do Americans try to be like Europe in education when it's the first thing they cut from budgets
Debate Rounds (3)
So to begin this debate, (Though I take the stand as Pro, in this debate, the positions are arbitrary, as this is intended to be more of an informative discussion than a debate between two well defined sides.) I just don't understand why America tries to compete with us Europeans in education yet they underfund their faculty and schools.
Thank you (great topic, also my first),
I am now ready for the next round...... (good luck!!)

I guess my problem was that I didn't see the logic behind the action being taken, I understand where you're coming from though, in the sense that the budget is like a plant and that you have to prune it time to time in order for the plant to produce more fruit. But still, how is it that by cutting governmental funding for schools going to help the them do better?
And I guess I can understand that maybe the American government isn't trying to copy the European education system. But my point still is how can they expect to see improvement in a system if that system is underfunded? I mean it's like a body trying to heal an injury but at the same time being malnourished.
I thank my opponent for her patience as I turn the debate over to her.
