Alright, I'm working on cutting a new aff. I'm thinking of something along the lines of,Plan: The United States Federal government should create and substantially fund debate programs in primary and secondary schools and substantially fund preexisting debate programs.
Thinking of having advantages like critical thinking promoting democracy and agency, and maybe about how it helps the U.S. stay competitive since people who do debate are way more likely to graduate high school. Would you suggest different advantages? Also, is there any place where I could find inherency evidence? I can't really find any articles about how many people are doing debate, I just know from my personal experience that many programs are way underfunded or don't even exist. This is the first time I've written a case, so any feedback is appreciated.
