Let us know what free education is first.

Free education refers to a system of education where education is provided without the imposition of direct costs or fees on students. In a system of free education, individuals are not charged tuition or other charges for sitting in an educational institution. This system can apply to various levels of education, including primary, secondary, and higher education. Free educational doesn’t mean that education is free altogether. Rather, government or charity organizations come to fund education.


Opening statements from the group that supports free education:

Free education means that any child, no matter where they come from, will be able to get the same quality education. Free education at certain level is constitution right. Free education is important because it guarantees some level of education for every student in the country. This means that every student has an equal opportunity to reach this level of education at an equal level. Individuals have significant barriers to education, including tuition fees, textbooks, and other related expenses. Free education allows more people to pursue education, eliminating financial barriers to education. Thus the literacy rate of country is increased. For the development of the country, a more well-educated population is needed. Free education contributes to generating a more skilled and educated workforce. Free education allows disadvantaged people to break the cycle of poverty and improve their socioeconomic status. In addition, students will not be worried about getting student loans to facilitate their education. This ensures that students remain debt-free.

Opening statements from the group that opposes free education:

I think free education creates a number of distortions. Thought free education is free for students, but government has to bear such huge expenses. This means that free education forces the government to borrow money for free education in the country and to raise government taxes. Low quality education will arise as educational institutions might face budget limitations. Therefore, this limitation leads to a lower quality of education and reduces overall educational standards. Free education discourages youth from dealing with money in a responsible way that can make them green in managing money. Free education makes the students less serious; on the other hand, paying for education serves as a motivator for students to take their studies seriously. Free education means that there will be overcrowded classrooms, which will negatively affect the personal touch required between teacher and student
