Freedom of Education

25-10-2003, 02:12
The Republic of Khedive had proposed earlier this week a resolution that would have guaranteed free education for all peoples no matter their age or what type of education they were wanting. Since the resolution still lacks the 118 or so preliminary votes it needs to be voted on my the entire General Assembly, the Republic will reintroduce the resolution and advocate its passing more strongly.

For too long, the Republic has seen gifted peoples not pursue higher education due to financial constraints or some other type of problem. We believe all people should be guaranteed freedom of opportunity and the first step towards this is freedom of education.

Additionally, as the Republic reviewed previous UN Resolutions on the topic we have observed that the UN has sanctioned free education only for peoples below the age of 18. Khedive recognizes that there are peoples above the age of 18 who may not have a high-school level (secondary level) education, and we believe that they should be guaranteed free education as well.

Please support us in this endeavor!

Thank You

What kind of sick, sad bastard are you to think that it's ok to force Joe Sixpack to pay to educate the kids of Jeff Twelvepack?

Some things should not be taught. I don't like the idea of all or nothing.

People shouldn't be allowed to learn how to blow up building just because they are bored.

I'd prefer the need to know basis.

:D I for one think that it's a great idea. It's true that some may think it not fair that joe pays for jeff :lol: but it really depends on how you want the system to be like. It's a very liberal idea and this would try to teach that it is the community who must try and help each other. After all, there may be a time in the future when you might need someone to do something for you. It really should be our duty to be understanding and helpful to our neighbors. A more communal society would be much better and less individualistic, selfish and self-centered no?

the people of The United Socialist States of Cannibal penguins, will not support this flawed policy. Our population is on a need to know basis only, we teach who and what we wish. Thus we do not support your policy

ever heard of naming you country what you wish.. many dictatorships call themselves "the democratic republic of" , my state will be called what i wish it to be and what i tell the people it will be.
we support our people, we give them work, money food... we just decide how much. thus we have decided that some things and some people do not need to b taught

Being in the UN, you don't get much say in what government you have. :(

I hope I have not confused anyone. This resolution will not dictate what individual countries will teach or who they will teach. This resolution will basically guarantee that anyone who wants an education (of any sort determined by individual nations) should be allowed one.

If everyone below 18 is given the choice to a free education, what not everyone above? I hope you change your mind and support us.

The difference is they cannot chose. This forces the government to teach them whether they like to or not.
