Let the Debates Begin
The George W. Bush Institute's 2013 high school economic debate program kicks off today with a regional qualifying debate tournament at the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation in Plymouth Notch, Vermont. More than 100 high school debate students, who are in New Englad this summer participating in the "Debate Institutes at Dartmouth," are debating the topics of protectionism, trade and economic growth. Here are some early photographs of the day's events:
