Free Education Act[Draft]

Postby The Federation of Spokane » Sat Dec 01, 2018 1:26 pm

Observing that certain nations require their citizens to pay for education;
Acknowledging it will be a financial struggle for poorer families in the nations;
Recognizing that bright minds can be found through the schooling system;
Admonishing the fact the children from certain nations can have their minds wasted from lack of good schooling tailored to fit their needs;
Worried about the disregard for brilliant children and special needs children if they are poor and can’t pay;
Wanting to make sure every child in the NS world gets the education they need;
The World Assembly hereby:
1. Requests reduced rates of education for poorer citizens.
2. Asks that schools have accommodations for those who need it.
3. Requires a testing committee to be formed to identify brilliant children and get proper accommodations for them to learn at their pace.
News: Spokane Forces have made Holon and Bat Yam, Israelstine into a new Israelstine Government that will hopefully set up peace in the area at last. Spokane now has the Neo Prussian Reich as the Federated States of the Prussian Reich

"There are innumerable issues with this resolution, the least of which is that it is not formatted properly and suffers from a raft of procedural and technical issues. Before such issues are resolved, we cannot even begin to engage in a constructive debate regarding the meat of this resolution."

It was temporary, I’ll post the updated format.

Requests reduced rates of education for poorer citizens.

Reduced rates of education? So, if you are poor, you are only entitled to basic or substandard education. Because that’s how that reads.

And if “free education” is what you want, who pays for all this “free” stuff?

Expanding on what Desmosthenes and Burke has said, it looks like your proposal is simply a less comprehensive version of what's already been done. That doesn't mean you have to throw the baby out with the bathwater, however, as you could easily do something with respect to tertiary/specialized education, and focus on subsidizing skill development of less financially-endowed individuals in trades (such as carpentry) and professions (such as law) to help bolster their future earning potential, for example.
