Since my opponent didn't publish anything, I'll decide to publish something

=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.
