June 2, 2011 8:30 AM--School Debates

Every Wednesday afternoon the entire school participates in a debate.  Yesterday was the first one of the term and the first one I went to.  It was interesting.  At first I thought they did these debates to get the girls to practice critical thinking, which is usually lost in this education system.  However, the real reason they have debates is so they can practice their English.  I was a little surprised that they girls themselves run the whole thing.  There is very little intervention from the faculty.  And they actually seem to really get into what is going on.
