From a Storage Closet Between Multipurpose Rooms

Oct 19, '20

In the 21st century, the connection of society between the religious metaphor and the legal metaphor has been broken. Neither expresses the community’s vision of its future and its past. Debate aims to reestablish that connection. Particularly in British Parliamentary style debate, which is the style with the maximum number of debaters, at eight...

French Provincial Debate

Aug 17, '20

Lots of things zigged rather than the preferred zagging during Brentwood’s Covidated 2020 third term. For nearly three rather long-seeming months, students have had their fitness go down, rather than the usual up, (inversely proportional to the body mass of many of their teachers), their AP exams go from a three hour leisure cruise of entire...
