Standing up for What’s Right – 8th Graders Debate the Absolute Freedom of Speech

Last week selected 8th graders at ACS debated the absolute freedom of speech before judges from the ACS Debates Club and members of the school community. This event was the culmination of a full month’s worth of preparation and the participants were democratically elected representatives from each prep section. After heated disputes, the team of the Opposition won the debate by a narrow margin, while both teams received certificates, as well as praise and feedback from the 11th grade judges.
