Oakland debate group gives low-income students opportunities usually exclusive to private schools

Posted on

“Urban debate leagues serve students in low-income communities and provide debate opportunities for students and schools that otherwise would not be able to afford debate teams. Whitaker and her team hope to continue to grow the organization to reach more Title 1 schools in the Bay Area. Staff at BAUDL are passionate about supporting youth of color and low-income students in pursuing debate, which offers valuable skills they can use in college and in adulthood, like argumentation, research, writing, critical thinking and analysis, and logic.”
