high school debate

The debate itself is an effective practice of citizenship. It seems to be one of the most thorough ways to inform others about a specific issue (use of private military contractors), as well as to make a decision. The cross examination period in which they question each other pushes the argument and makes the debaters consider points that they may otherwise be blind to or purposefully avoid. They are clearly working through the entire argument while maintaining the common good in mind.
