“Beyond public speaking, participating in debate activities teaches students to look at issues from multiple perspectives, engage in the democratic process, seek answers from reliable and unbiased sources, and most of all, it requires them to think critically about issues and form their own informed opinions about the facts. When I think about the current state of our great nation, I can’t help but think that we could all benefit from taking a speech and debate class.”
