Discussion in 'Education' started by Mr.Fitnah, Mar 6, 2010.
Education is not a right. Access to an education is a privalage that one should take advantage of, and most don't.
I saw that "education is a right" poster on Glenn Beck yesterday. It looked like something they would have drawn up in the old Soviet Socialist Republic - right down to the red color and a "workers" hand pressed down on an open book.
Education of our minors, our youth, is one of the great things we can do...
Education of any adult is on that adult... and fuck these greedy little entitlement junkies who continually call for free college for all (of course at the expense of everyone but themselves)
Education is a privilege that has become almost an absolute right in the minds of many... but it is a privilege that I support wholeheartedly for our youth
Did you use the GI bill?
I don't see it listed in the constitution, so no.
But you certainly have a right to PURSUE it if it leads to happiness.
What level or type of education?
An ignorant, illiterate population certainly isn't in the national interest for a whole bunch of obvious reasons. I never thought about whether it's a "right" and I'd have to think on that some, but it would be really, really stupid not to provide K-12 to every child.
Rather than education being a Right - education is a parental responsibility.
It is in society's interest for children to be educated, but the effect of politicizing education has resulted in indoctrination, not real education.
Yep.. used some of that employment benefit I agreed to
Does not make education a right... just as any other employer's tuition reimbursement does not make it a right
I'm going to have to go ahead and offer you my approval of this post, even in light of our earlier argument.
