Reasons for voting decision: Pro's arguments all amounted to assertions without warrants. While he's right that not all kids would have access to home schooling, that doesn't do anything to explain why a school is beneficial. Saying that getting an education is a good start, but you need to explain why that education is uniquely beneficial. Con may not be giving me much in the way of warrants either, but he's giving me alternatives. Admittedly, some of those alternatives sound a little... child labor-ish... but I'm given no reason to believe that schools offer a uniquely beneficial education that cannot be obtained otherwise. As such, while Con hasn't justified that these other options are better, Pro has failed to uphold his burden to show that kids should go to school, and as such he loses the debate.
