"Mr. Speaker,

By this act we shall implement an universal voucher system to replace our current public education system were those who cannot afford a private education are refereed to substandard public facilities. By outsourcing public education services to competing private entrepreneurs, we ensure both cost-effectiveness that everyone can have a free private education, and fairness and freedom of choice for everyone and not just the wealthy."

MessageThe educational system doesn't need to be for profit. Its already too expensive. We need to compete globally and we cant do that when the educational system is too concern with increasing profits and not educating our students. When things are for profit the government will have to pay higher rates that the market will keep increasing to meet their quotas, which causes our government to want to reduce spending in that area. Our students will not be able to afford books or classes because the government subsidies will lack and the market will keep increasing the prices because they can and aren't regulated to ensure affordability. Also Article 4 is dangerous. As a nurse I advocate Sex ED. It must be taught to decrease STD, teen pregnancy, and abortion rates. If you advocate for personal freedoms and want to reduce abortions. Allowing abortions (personal freedom) alongside access to affordable contraceptives and Sex ED is the route that needs to be taken.

Message"Mr. Speaker,

Matter of fact is that in a monolithic socialist style public education system, there is no accountability and no guarantee of either cost-effectiveness or good services for the customers. You'll find a higher degree of students suffering from conditions like dyslexia or ADHD among the lower social strata for which freedom of choice and hand tailored education services are vital for a good studying time and only our model guarantees freedom of choice for everyone and not just the rich.

As for sexual education, the relevant part of should already be taught in biology class. Sex is a very private thing and many do not feel comfortable involving teachers in such. Schools must have the freedom to chose how to handle that."

Random quote: "I do hope you understand that I'm not pocketing a dollar from this. Neither is my wife. Nor are my two kids, nor is my father. We don't need to rob poor people in a poor country blind. We can just do it to the rich in a rich country. And the greatest thing is, the masses applaud us and give us medals.." � Rose Matterson-Scott, President of the Aldegār Blakshyrts
