PGCPS Students started this petition to Prince Georges County Public Schools

As students, coaches, debaters and supporters of policy debate we are calling upon the Prince George's County School System (PGCPS)  to provide funding for students to debate in the Washington Urban Debate League (WUDL). Policy debate allows students to develop exceptional research, reading, writing & public speaking skills. Thanks to policy debate in the WUDL students have been able to research, debate and learn about a wide variety of topics. This unique debate format has allowed hundreds & hundreds of students to have incredible amounts of success, this was highlighted last year as Jonathan Collins from Duval High School was named the national debater of the year & is going to study & debate for Harvard University. There are countless & countless of examples of policy debate changing students lives which we urge students to share when signing this petition & there are countless numbers of PGCPS students who have debated in the policy debate format for many years. A change in this format would take away the opportunity for these students to continue their passions would prevent students from learning & developing the skills exclusive to policy debate. It is for this reason we strong urge PGCPS to provide funding for the upcoming season in the WUDL. The WUDL means so much to the students, coaches and supporters of policy debate, we hope to see this change and allow us the students to continue to represent the brilliance of the PGCPS school district. If you agree with this petition and you are signing it, please tell us what policy debate or the WUDL means to you & share your personal experiences. Every signature matters & we hope that PGCPS listens to the concerns of their students & allows us to continue debating and representing their district at the national level.
