free will school
Debate Rounds (4)
classes of course have to go in a schedule in which the teachers have planned and the system is very different than it is now. There can be big differentials in the ages of people in the same class, but everybody is there by their own will and they are all there because they want to be. There will be limits in classes that you have to know how to read in classes where you really need to know that, same as you need to understand some words before going to some classes or you have to know math or different language etc. If it is really necessary. This way the system teaches you everything that a school would nowdays teach, but it would all happen in a way that people would really learn everything that they are thought and without every problem that the system creates today.
Excuse me if there are some language issues english is not my native language.
I negate the resolution on the following points. First, most kids can not make the necessary choices to elect the courses they will need for the future. For example, a 5th grader might think math will not help him for life when it will. Also most kids don't know what they want to do when they are finsihed studying. I am in High school and I am not sure. Secondly, this system successfully is elaborated internationally so that kids learn what is necessary for society. For example kids in Korea have to study their multiplication tables while in the USA do to, maybe at different ages but they still have to learn it. Lastly, although sometimes you might ask yourself why a kid must study World Geography if they want to be a doctor. Yet this teaches kids how to study, work, and prepare which are all skills for life, regardless of profession.
People in school cant make any decisions for further education if they haven't got a plan from someone else or from their own minds and schools destroys our creativity, because we are being teached like robots to learn things, that we don't want to learn and we learn stuff that our brain is not ready to process and at the second you have to make your own decisions, you cannot make them cause you cannot remember how it is done and at that point, no one is teaching it for you cause no one knows how to do it. That is because of every single brain that has been teached ever, works very differently and we haven't got a clue just how many ways brains can work. The problem of mass producting different kind of people and brains together is, well think about putting 20 different animals in a same cage...
That is the biggest reason for miserable adults. Most of the adults still don't know, what they want to be when they "grow up" because school has killed their creative thinking and now, many of them are just trying to fulfil their needs with a job, where they get enough money to satisfy their needs and addictions. Only a handful of people in the world are doing what they really want and the great they really want.
Yoyetofriend forfeited this round.
First, you deny part of free will school, by saying that kids can't choose their own school subjects, which is my first contention. Secondly, without grades how do you know if the kid understood the subject and to what extent? Thirdly, how does school reduce our creativity if not augment it. Could you not say that learning these subjects makes kids think and augment their imagination? And how are they going to implying the real world without knowing basic core information? Lastly, school has been one of the greatest invents of human kind, A place where people can be systematically and orderly educated for the future. It has worked since it's invention, why should we go to a undefined disorganized and chaotic system when we already established the ideal system?

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct for the forfeit. As to arguments, Pro failed to show that his proposal was better in any meaningful sense than the current system--and did not really respond to Con's argument against. I'm rather surprised since, to be honest, Con's argument was scanty (and had a forfeit!), and Pro's was certainly longer, but Pro just didn't fulfill his BoP. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
