Great Debate In Chicago

"The

competition was part of the After-School All-Stars, a pilot program

organized by Chicago Public Schools with help from the National

Association of Urban Debate Leagues and the Chicago Debate League.

Following the recent release of the film The Great Debaters, starring

Denzel Washington, officials are hoping the program will see increased

participation.

However, the complicated subject initially daunted Pat Jonikaitis, a

debate coach at Kellogg Elementary School on the South Side."
