Debate:Which has the best philosophy of education: the public school system, private schools, or the home school movement?
The Home School movement, definitely.
The home school movement provides parents the responsibility and wonderful opportunity to educate and enrich their children's minds. I go to classes where we study Logic, Latin, and read college books. I have been home schooled for four years and I went to a private school for five years. Home schooling has provided me with enormous amounts of extra-curricular and social activities, as well as academic privileges. Home schoolers do have a social life, contrary to what the liberals will have you believe. Actually, home-schoolers are more eloquent and insightful in their writing and speech. I am in a home school speech and debate club and I see home schoolers who are speaking with the clarity of . me to any speech and debate tournaments and you will see for yourself. I encourage you to home school your child for it will be one of the best things you can ever do for your child.

- Strictly from personal experience, a homeschool environment is fertile ground for brainwashing, and usually of the conservative religious bent as well. Public school, for all its flaws, at least exposes students to a far more diverse environment than the other options.

Public school is necessary for those who can't afford private school and don't have the time for home school.-AmesGyo! 19:57, 9 April 2007 (EDT)
The establishment of public school systems (in the 18th and 19th centuries?) brought about mass literacy as never before seen by humans. Although private schools are a nice option for the rich, and homeschooling for those who have the time and access to resources, the backbone of western civilization as we know it - at its best, even - is the right to a good education implied in tax-supported free schools for everyone.
