Editorial Reviews

Master Debaters introduces us to the compelling subculture of high school policy debate, its key players and ancestry, odd habits and lingo. This is fast-paced theater, a sport featuring academic athletes from all walks of life, a bulwark of the Western tradition. And it happens every weekend under our noses in mostly empty classrooms across the USA.

You won't believe your ears at times... but in a good way. Verbal and cerebral fireworks like I've never seen. I learned a TON about debate and what it can do in both social and educational spheres. Like all good docs, you learn a lot but it doesn't feel like a chore. As Bill Cosby once said, "Be careful, or you just might learn something."

A must watch! Kids are underprivileged in a tough neighborhood in South Bronx are up against a 50% graduation rate. They are given the opportunity to learn award winning debate skills. I really enjoyed the gritty true life story of innocent kids in a tough neighborhood and a mentor/debate coach from a very successful white collar world commits to teaching debate skills to kids that are just trying to survive. My heart felt for these kids and you get attached to their personal challenges and growth towards success by learning debate skills.
