=Technicality=

"Do school prepare kids for the future or for factory jobs" is the question.  There is a technicality that give me an advantage and I intend to exploit it.

If even some schools fulfill this, then this point is valid.

=Argument=

If even some schools fulfill this, then this point is valid.

Some schools, in fact most schools prepare their students for the future.  The US government spends over $10000 on education per student(https://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-education-spending-tops-global-list-study-shows/).  Given that there are about 45 million students in the US, approximately $450 billion is spent on education annually.  Why would the US gov spend so much on education? Because education is an investment in the future. Education prepares students for the future.  Without it, our citizens would be about as educated as Africans, who live in terrible countries and if they are employed, it’s in a terrible job. Education is one major thing that separates us from the Africans.  Without it, we would be in a situation no fiscally better then they are.

Reason:
Although I did not find the argument convincing based on the lack of input by Pro the Con position (Alex) should win. My reasoning is the trouble and time Con took as opposed to Pro shows merit. Pro did not attempt to refute Con at all.

Yes, it should in my opinion. I will ask the moderator to change it. Sorry. That was my error. I figured that Con equaled Contender.

"the Con position (Alex) should win"
You voted against me. I'm the pro position.
"My reasoning is the trouble and time Con took as opposed to Pro shows merit." Shouldn't that mean I win?
"Pro did not attempt to refute Con at all."
It was the other way around.
