About High School Debate
Debate at the high school level offers unparalleled learning opportunity and growth. Students debate a national or international public policy of immediate relevance to our world. They stay with the same topic all year and learn to debate on both sides of the issue, hearing strengths in each perspective. Their depth of knowledge and command of the complexities of the topic is impressive by the end of a year. Over the course of the school year they have had opportunity to test, grow and adapt through local, regional and national competitions.
BUDL’s staff partners with Baltimore City teachers to support teachers who build and coach their squads. With BUDL’s support they hold after school practices and take part in local monthly citywide tournaments and travel to regional and national competitions.
