The USA Debate Team will be showcasing the World Schools Debate format at The Reagan Library on Tuesday, January 17th, 2017.  This format is a unique and dynamic style of debate, unlike any other practiced in the United States. This debate features a dynamic format combining the concepts of “prepared” topics with “impromptu” topics, encouraging debaters to focus on specified issues rather than debate theory or procedural arguments. The topic that will be debated is: This House believes that the school choice movement jeopardizes civil rights.
