Repeal "Free education"
A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution

Category: Repeal
Resolution: #28
Proposed by: BigDawg

Description: UN Resolution #28: Free education (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: Description: [url=]UN Resolution #28: Free Education (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The General Assembly of the United Nation,

AWARE of the need for providing free education to all young members of society regardless of their income,

COMMENDING UN Resolution #28: Free Education, for its spirit and intentions to promote free education in all member nations,

ALSO COMMENDING [url=]UN Resolution #171: UN Educational Aid Act (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Educational), for its far reaching abilities to bring education to all lands in a viable, fair and determined manner.

FURTHER Considering that certain parties with a Religious or Political agenda could interpret this as a justification for compulsive participation of children and young adults in programmes of Indoctrination and "brain-washing" of various kinds,

UNDERSTANDING that Resolution #171 "UN Educational Aid Act" provides UN member states with better means for promoting education,

CONCLUDING that Resolution #28 is both redundant and inefficient in achieving its noble goal to provide free education to all,

REPEALS Resolution #28: Free Education.

This is currently up for approval in the UN proposals. I think you will find that we have proved that this resolution is too vague and needs to be rewritten.

The original resolution as stated. Free education to all people under the age of 18.

Is a nice idea but is very vague and could be termed prohibitive.

1. This would infringe on smaller governments with a struggling economy.
2. This resolution doesnt describe what education means.
a. This could allow schools to teach our children about hate, crime and others means that arent beneficial to human rights.
b. This resolutions doesnt talk about standards for education.

3. This resolution also doesnt define if the education is state run or if other groups can have school and universities.

My 2 cent for now.

And the age of 18 is an inappropriate threshold for some of the sapient species that exist in certain member-nations' populations...

Instead of "under the age of 18", perhaps it would be "under age of majority?" or something to that extent?

It's the fact that education isnt defined. The real issue with this resolution is that it is VAGUE. what is education? does this mean we can have schools train terrorists? Or criminals? because that could be education to some people. Does the education have to be state run public school? and no other private groups can run a school? There are no way of making sure that the education is standardized or that the teachers are worthy enough to teach.

my 2 cent as of now.
