    The academic debate organizations are in a bad state right now. Anyone saw the academic debate where the participants refused the topic and decided to set the topic themselves and they still own the debate. It’s become more about how fast you can talk and much less on the substance of an argument. Hopefully these young people are being taught to critically think and not just spout talking points without understanding.

      LOL…don’t worry about these kids…it’s not a public school, they’ll be fine.
      Worry about your own failures.

        You mean your failures, you might want to re-read what I said and if you have an issue with it debate the point.

        LOL golden example right there.

        Why so insulting regarding public schools? Many public school children have won debates and other academic competitions. Be a part of the solution!

      “the participants refused the topic and decided to set the topic themselves”

      That sounds like a political debate. Don’t respond to the question asked, respond to the question you wanted to be asked.
