Islamic State Debate at Tesoro High School

This petition had 33 supporters

The success of Tesoro High School relies on the ability of its students to critically think about pressing issues that face our nation. One topic that is of particular interest is the motivations of the Islamic State (ISIS) and the degree to which Islam plays a role in our world.

Public schools assume the role of educating students by instilling modes of critical thinking, independent study, and creativity. However, an increasing number of students are actively opposed to an open marketplace of ideas, where debate and arguments can be interrogated for their intellectual merit. Independent research into subjects like economics, science, politics, and philosophy are disparaged from being spoken about in the public forum. According to the Pew Research Center, 40% of millennials find it appropriate to limit speech that is considered offensive to minorities. 

Help us put on a debate in the Theater by signing this petition and spreading the word.

Thank you :)
