This is the same type of debating that is conducted in government. You want to get a bill passed, you'll have to convince your audience first. You will be building your own national law (No state issues, that includes education). You will create a speech to persuade your audience to pass it. You will need to do a little research but nothing like public forum.
Below you'll find all the resolutions and topics that you may sign up for. If you do not sign up for my resolutions you will need to write one your self. You also have access to templates for both the speeches and the legislation.
