On a personal note, it’s my hope that education debates continue, as this an area I feel is often neglected in public discussions. It’s almost my hope that in getting discussed more often, that the subject of education and how it should be approached will result in it getting discussed with more rigorous analysis.
Should debaters be more experimental and adventurous in their arguments, this can be made to happen, to explore and pay what is owed to the true spirit of each motion. (Now this is a principled stand on how debates ought to be played.) It will be hard, but definitely worth a try for a round or two.
