“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”
― George Bernard Shaw
ProCon.org is a fantastic concept and a website I only came across years ago because I ran an internet search to see if anybody had already come up with the concept for such a valuable resource before me. Unfortunately for me (though fortunately for the rest of the world), the website already existed and was running full steam.
The information provided on each topic is abundant, comprehensive, and virtuously unbiased. I love that it exists, trust the viewpoints they present, and wish more people were aware that such an honorable team is trying to keep the general population informed about the topics that matter in this day and age.
A great source for nonpartisan information. They are especially important in this age of "fake news."
I use ProCon all the time to keep informed about both sides of a conflicted issue. I learn so much. Highly recommended!
If i ever want to "check the facts" I feel confidant that they have done their homework and I am getting a real strong answer of facts ALL ACROSS THE BOARD. I also like how they present the data to give a full view of the debate.
ProCon gives me the opportunity to see both (or more) sides of many issues. I have been a political junkie for years, now I am able to make informed decisions. Thank you ProCon.com
I really like how it it is unbiased. It is easy to make a decision about a topic using procon.org.
I use ProCon.org to keep up with political issues. I find it easier (and more unbiased) than searching mainstream media. I have used the information from this site when considering for whom to vote in both state and federal elections. I find it extremely helpful during this current election period!
As a former social studies teacher I am envious that I did not have ProCon for my students. Now, I recommend the site to many young and older folks to help them wade through the complexity of the major issues and politics of our time.
Thank you for a job well done.
Great website to use with students for up to date information pro and con!
Excellent organization helping lay people educate themselves about various issues. Especially like the Presidential election quiz - Find Your Match.
ProCon.org is the place that I can read and learn more about different topics that matter to me. This site helps me making informed decisions about things that we need to know as responsible citizens. As an example, I can learn more about the presidential candidates without the usual media tabloid approach to this very important decision I will be making in November.
So good to know what the different sides are proposing about several important issues of society.
Anyone wishing to really know what the positions of both sides are behind any controversial issue should keep this site in their favorites list and use it often, as I do. Think for yourself. Don't listen to others, your friend, neighbor, hair dresser or even your clergy. Educate yourself. Look at both sides here and make up your own mind! If you want to make the world a better place, start here and pass it on! It's hard to hate when you educate!!
Amazing website! Helped me so much with school! Thanks!
With all the bias lurking within education and the news media these days, it's refreshing and inspiring to find an outlet that presents different sides of a topic in a clear nonpartisan manner.
i used this to write an essay about why the USA should have National Helathcare. it helped me get tons of facts and study results to strengthen my argument. thanks for making a great site for students to use! my teacher even recommended it, too, for my classmates and us to use.
I am an online student and I used this organization's website for a reference on a paper I wrote regarding illegal immigration. Their site provides some excellent information and I was able to successfully integrate what I learned from the research I conducted about illegal immigration into my written submission.
ProCon.org always presents both sides of an issue.
