Philosophy Question

Question description

List the premises, subconclusions and conclusion of the following argument in logical order, restating any rhetorical questions as declarative sentences and any emotive language in purely cognitive terms. Identify any assumptions, and list them as separate premises. Then identify any fallacies of reasoning and explain how this particular argument commits those fallacies. (Do not give a general description of the fallacy; say how this argument commits those particular fallacies – what specifically has gone wrong.) 20 points Lack of money is not the problem with public schools. Just the opposite: the more they get, the worse they become. Since the schools in Washington, D.C. are horrible and receive 2.8 times as much money per student as California schools, one could conclude that matching that funding level here in California would drop school performance to the D.C. level. Ugh. The teacher’s unions and the bureaucrats have created the current mess, and the only way out is to privatize all California schools. It is a simple choice: do we care more about children or about unions and bureaucracy?
