Negative assertion #1:
Court-ordered desegregation plans do more harm than good. Questions about schooling should be left to communities to solve.
Negative evidence: The court mixing black and whites is making it worse for the students to foces in school. Schools should stay with their own color and race.
Negative assertion #2
Courts are powerless to combat prejudice.
Negative evidence: Courts cant make you talk to someone you don"t like or feel comforable talking to. Courts can tell you what to do but does everyone really listen? I don"t think so.
Negative assertion #3:
Race should not be used as a basis for school assignment.
Negative evidence:
The last 20 years brown full forced public schools were growing more segregated nation has become racially diverse.
White kids go to a school that 80 percent white kids go to.
Yet they say no child left behind but black kids are not getting treated as equal as the whites.

Ilenis
Conduct: 4
Sources: 3 some of your evidence is vague and more based on personal opinion
Arguments: 4 good questions; stayed on the topic and on your side
Spelling: 3
Analysis: 4 clearly you have your own ideas and were able to stay consistent throughout each round and not let your opponent confuse you.

Ilenis, I am glad you got switched into my class. You"ve been a part of one of the best classes I"ve ever had, and probably will have for a long time. I hope you will remember it as well as I do.

Analysis: 3 sometimes in the rebuttals you just repeated what you wrote in your assertion instead of directly arguing against Ilenis.

Darliana, I am so glad you came in to finish the job. You clearly understood the topic and made clear points. I always liked that you would laugh at my awkward moments in such a sympathetic way.
