That was fun. Thank you for the debate!
@madmike Great as always! And boy were we all over the place. This topic deserves days spent on it.
@eli_mcgowan I agree. I am a proponent of public education, and not a big fan of alternatives. It is enjoyable to engage with someone the exact opposite.
@madmike XDAbout as opposite as they come. I really hope I, my wife, and my daughter can be a personal testament to you about education outside school.
Private education was in the U.S.A. long before the beginning of the public school education movement in Massachusetts in the 1830s. Harvard, Yale, and Princeton universities were private divinity schools long before there was public education in this nation. I enjoyed the debate.
@sharkb8 you’re right. I came to the debate prepared to argue against a fully free market education system vs the current system/fully public system. He framed it a bit differently. He is tricky like that. And I should have used more examples of how the free market makes it impossible for some groups to have access to certain products. Thanks for your opinion.
@sharkb8 Oh,I forgot to add BOO HISS for voting against me!
