On December 12, the Washington Arlington Catholic Forensic League held its annual debate mega tournament, the biggest tournament of the year. Hundreds of teams from DC, Maryland, and Virginia competed, including some of the best in the nation. The topic this month was “Resolved: On balance, standardized testing is beneficial to K-12 education in the United States.” Students had to debate both sides of the resolution.
School Without Walls entered five teams and made an excellent showing. Congratulations especially to Mahler Revsine (’17) and Noa Rosinplotz (’18) for placing 3rd in Varsity debate and to Penelope Leibovich (’19) and Anthony Thomas (’18) for placing 5th in Novice. The rest of the team had stellar records as well—all the students put a lot of work into their cases and practices. We look forward to a great second half of the year!
