On September 23 the Connecticut Debate Association, our high school debate league, used the following resolution at their Novice Scrimmage:
Resolved: Every citizen should complete one year of national service.
CDA debates include a packet of articles to provide background on the topic. As this resolution is similar to the middle school scrimmage topic, we thought coaches might find it useful, either for their own education, or, after review, to pass on to their students. It complements the brief prepared by Eliza Posner that was previously made available to you.
