In the last 25 years, charter schools have become a highly sought-after alternative to traditional public education. Between 2004 and 2014 alone, enrollment increased from less than 1 million to 2.5 million students. Have charter schools lived up to their promise?

His opponents argue that he gave voice and legitimacy to extremists, and that his unpredictable, autocratic style is a threat to both democratic ideals at home, and stability abroad.

But others, including critics, argue that Trump’s election represents the will of the American people, who--hungry for change--repudiated the status quo. Should we give #Trump a chance?

There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, and the question of what to do with them has sparked years of fierce debate, but no significant action.

Do they make positive contributions to the economy and complement our workforce, or do they burden taxpayers and create unwanted competition for jobs? Should we give undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship? Read my analysis of the past +IntelligenceSquared Debates: http://bit.ly/undocumented-citizenship

While it’s the burning of coal that keeps the lights on, in most cases, it’s also the burning of coal that speeds up the process of climate change according to the EPA. The “Clean Power Plan” was devised by +President Barack Obama and it involved having each U.S. state reduce its carbon-dioxide output by 30 percent by the year 2030.

Is the +U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan a bold initiative to reduce carbon pollution at power plants, or an unconstitutional usurpation of power?

Given the continued division of our nation and in light of the election, Yuval Levin’s “Fractured Republic: Renewing America’s Social Contract in the Age of Individualism” is the perfect text to remedy any confusion about what has led to the fracturing of our nation.

“The same things that used to unite us and help us create strong social bonds have somehow become secondary to big business, big government, and rampant individualism.” Hearing Levin’s take on what our society has morphed into, for me, is worth the read alone.

What do the auto industry, agriculture, and energy sector have in common? These industries benefit from government subsidies. Do subsidies fill an important role in the public interest, or is it time to pull the plug on what some have termed corporate welfare?

Debaters took on this topic questioning whether corporate subsidies enable corruption and further inequality with a debate on the motion, “Eliminate Corporate Subsidies.” See more from the +Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates overview here: http://bit.ly/robertrosenkranz-eliminate-subsidies

Protests have erupted on university campuses across the country. Are the protestors silencing free speech, or are they just trying to be heard? And are the universities responding by defending free speech, or by suppressing it?

After financing a group of computer scientists who applied machine learning and statistical analysis to outperform the stock market, some interesting questions arose about whether machines might ever truly be intelligent enough to replace human experts.

Will the pursuit of superintelligence and autonomous machines result in unintended consequences? Should we fear AI, or will these fears prevent the next technological revolution? Learn more from the Intelligence Squared US​ debate: http://bit.ly/robert-rosenkranz-artificialintellignce-debate

Since the Syrian Civil War began in 2011, more than 4 million Syrians have fled the country, creating the greatest refugee crisis since World War II.
