All sane and considerate people who strive for prosperity have the same goals and targets. These goals include a healthy people, less violence and crime, freedom and a prosperous nation. However, people differ in their ideas so as to achieve these goals. Both liberalism and conservatism promoters seek to achieve positive results concerning the national educational policy. Although liberalism is supported a majority of the people, both principles (left-wing and right-wing) seek to find the most appropriate and method of overcoming illiteracy and ignorance (Neil, 28). The Democrats traditionally support the liberal principles as the Republicans believe in conservatism.
The liberalism principles are based on structuring the society on equality, justice and free from discrimination. They seek to achieve an egalitarian society that is fair for everyone regardless of their origin, condition or disability by centering on the government for solutions. While the liberals believe in the government's role in promoting equality for every citizen, the conservatives believe in an individual's effort and accountability to achieve their success with limited government help (John, Daun-Barnett, Karen and Moronski-Chapman, 11). The conservatives’ beliefs are based on maintaining traditional customs and institutions where people are free to pursue their unique goals. Instead of all sufficient government, they insist on the need for a government initiative to empower individuals to take responsibility and control of their lives.
I believe that the immediate solution with promising and reliable results is the liberal idea which proposes funding of all public schools to increase the student's performance. Instead of depending on a traditional system that only created a wider gap between for instance, the rich and the poor, (as conservatives assert), providing equal opportunities of all students will help them explore their potential. Moreover, equipping a standard public school classroom with enough well-paid teachers as the liberals suggest a more realistic, reasonable and immediate solution for the current situation in schools. The conservatism idea of providing parents with vouchers to decide the best choices for their children will not only ultimately render the government powerless and no longer in control of the education situation in the country but also limit children to their parents' knowledge and exposure.
