Out of curiosity, why was Russia in the list of potential resolutions? I thought they only did international resolutions every three-four years. Lookin' for a friend.

RIP policy teams

It looks like it's time to see just how far I can push the limits of a semi-kritikal affirmative in an overwhelmingly traditional area. This should be interesting.

That's the thing about K debaters. They know that they're cheating, but they know how to beat you in an argument about whether cheating is bad.

neg ground: states CP. politics disad. ASPEC. spending disad. T. plenty of kritiks i'm sure. 

impacts: education about structural inequalities... umm.... what else.... uh.. something about unions and the economy maybe? idk

affs: require race education. require policy debate in schools (this would be my aff if i were debating this resolution). something about funding or teacher pay. impacts would have to be external b/c i see no way to argue big impacts to whatever actually gets done in schools, at least not in any immediate timeframe. 

 

bee tee dubz this resolution was my last choice

 

good luck to all you high school debaters. Hopefully next year's college topic is better because im graduating this year

Impacts; Poor education leads to bad policy making which leads to uncontained nuclear war.

ok so we have bad education in the squo which puts us on a course for extinction. you require better education in schools which makes students smarter and leads to better policies when exactly? which prevents a war that's going to happen when exactly?

 

this is my biggest problem with this rez

I actually like this about this rez. Maybe we'll finally get away from absurd nuclear extinction scenarios. (or not, considering politics ground)

But now, instead of impacts that are like Death, Havoc, extinction, we have like education, decision making, analytical thinking, etc. That's kinda bad because it takes out the completely exaggerated impacts. Instead of comparing the number of people we "save," we're comparing the impacts of "education" and decision making. Its gonna make you think harder, which is a good thing I guess, but for me, its kinda taking the fun out.

I just don't think that's gonna happen
