Hello all, I am looking to expand the libertarian presence on these forums and to create an official libertarian party. To do so we need your assistance and I urge all those who hold similar views to announce their interest here!


http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4325292

Please feel free to ask any questions, in our party we would have positions for all. Whether you fancy a heated debate, want to create some change or just love being in a community, we are the place for you!

Private corporations when there's a demand for them to do so.

Do you think everyone should have access to public funded education ? If no how do you guarantee equality of opportunity and meritocracy ?

Public funded education shouldn't exist. Equality of opportunity would exist by the state not being in the way to prevent it and meritocracy would naturally occur through the state not legally forcing/entrenching equality or hierarchy but rather letting it occur naturally.

Case in point, that doesn't make sense.. If there is no public schooling than your level of education depends on your wealth.

if you have a just legal system not determined by corporatism or corruption, then there is nothing wrong with a system of private and deregulated education. not only will the quality of schools generally increase over time with a capitalist education system (just like generally everything in the private sector), but those whom will not prosper under it (idiots, basically, or delinquents) will not pay for it anyway (referring to the family and the children). also, consider this: if there are parents who really do want to give their child a good education, there is honestly nothing stopping them from attaining the money to send them to a reasonable-quality school. my parents are poor - my one working parent has always been a postman, and I went to an expensive private school for about 4 years of my education. also, if I really wanted to go to school and my parents didn't send me to school, there is always the possibility that, in such an age of online information, I can simply access courses and article online anyway. yes, it will be harder, but so what? I'm not paying for the privilege of teachers. and teachers aren't mandatory to good education. if you are a terrible student, a brilliant teacher will be useless. so to portray a lack of public schools as socially crippling is nothing but drama. there is an abundance of evidence that spending on schools does not equate to better education anyway. you can have great education from an extremely modest baseline. and that can be covered privately. it's all about the philosophy of the student and to some extent the parents.
