Released: Filed Under: Parliamentary Debate
About "Betsy DeVos"
A big reform last year in the NCFCA was Title IX reforms, and it looks like some debaters’ plans are coming true. According to Saturday’s Wall Street Journal:
“Democrats are melting down over the Department of Education’s proposed Title IX reforms, and you’d think Secretary Betsy DeVos had declared open season on college women. But the secretary’s ideas won implicit support last week when another court rebuked university administrators for violating the due-process rights of someone accused of sexual misconduct.”
Should Betsy succeed in her Title IX reforms? Or should she peril? Parli debaters this week get to debate it.
This week’s topics of debate include Title IX, American football, romaine lettuce (or rather the CDC’s power over it), Hitler analogies, overthrowing governments, Microsoft, and what world leaders need to take a hike.
