The Solution for Gaps in Learning: Speech and Debate

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


My goal is to increase the funding for Speech and Debate programs in the Milton, MA and Boston, MA public schools. Some students thrive in academic settings, while some grow in artistic settings. Speech and debate specifically, fill gaps that academic classes leave behind. Speech and debate benefits confidence, leadership, writing skills, critical thinking, and much more. Did you know that 90% of urban high school debaters graduate, while a meer 50% of urban high school non-debaters graduate? The average GPA of a debater is 3.75! If speech and debate make such a difference, why aren't they curriculums part of every school? Should we really be letting funding get in the way of sucess and education?
