what are your views on tuition? Does it does more harm than good
Debate Rounds (3)
Tuition is a very powerful tool for those who require additional assistance in their academic stages of life but also supplies challenging material for those who require harder work. Let's face it, a normal public school does not have the capabilities to attend to every child's individual needs. You may believe that school is more the enough but some students cannot cope with the academic stress that school provides. In a class of fifty people, it is incredibly hard to get all you answered addressed especially if others in your class are also struggling. Some people just require extra help, what's wrong with them getting a tutor to supply this help ? Also, tutors offer the chance to individualise your learning. If you want to experiment with first year university work then go ahead, if,you want to revisit some earlier concepts you can. You can't do that with normal schooling. Furthermore, tuition allows for this who want to accelerate to work ahead. I am incredibly bored with my school's English so i ask my tutor to challenge me with different writing styles I have never even heard of before.
Your argument that students will really on tuition classes does not elaborate on how it is bad for them to learn more from the tutor then the school. If they have learnt the work before, they will obviously become bored with the schools work as it is too easy, it is then the schools responsibility to supply them with harder material.
All of your arguments depend on using them in excess whilst most people won't do that due to economic restraints. Tutors provide an individualised learning program for students to expand beyond the educational limits they have on them by our modern education system. You can revise the basics or skip ahead due to your own interest. It is the most efficient way of educating a generation as it deals with everyone's needs rather then clumping them in by class system.

Reasons for voting decision: The burden was on Pro to show that there was more harm than good from tutoring. While Pro speculated many things, I don't see any evidence for his position. As such, arguments to Con.
