The release I received today reads:
We have heard about this issue from politicians, preachers and pundits. Now its time to hear from the pupils. The Memphis Urban Debate League Advisory Board, a 501(c)(3) public charity, together with Rhodes College and the University of Memphis, is sponsoring two public forum debates on the MCS Charter issue.... Please consider attending to hear what MCS students think (both pro and con) about this important issue that directly impacts them.
Memphis Urban Debate League Advisory Board
The question before the young debaters is this: "Resolved: The voters of the City of Memphis should vote to transfer the administration of Memphis City Schools to the Shelby County Board of Education."
The first debate is at 3 p.m., Jan. 30 at Rhodes College, McCallum Ballroom. Kingsbury students will argue the affirmative and Whitehaven students will argue the negative.
The second debate is at 4 p.m., Feb. 5 at the University of Memphis, Psychology Auditorium.
