The Mount Washington School has kicked off public debate month in style by heading to the White House this past Friday. Debaters, along with Mt. Washington Coach, Ryan Kaiser, scoured the White House Visitor’s Center for facts they could use to respond to this statement: The White House represents every day life in America.

In pursuit of an answer, debaters learned fun facts ranging from the negotiation of major peace treaties inside the White House walls to the cozy living quarters for families, to White House pets, to the fact that President Reagan had 3 TONS of jelly beans shipped to the White House for his inauguration! While several of us agreed that we love jelly beans, we also agreed we’d never have the luxury of having 6000 lbs of them all at once! So, does life in the White House represent daily life in America? You’ll have to decide that for yourself!
