Segregation affects how an african american kid does in school for many reason. African american teachers arent paid much and the school supplies are cheap hand me downs. Another reason is because when an african american student gets bullied it may bring his/her self esteem lower causing less studying and more worrying about bullys. Some students are feeling worthless as the school system switches the students around like chess pieces. This causes many arguement and protest which brings negetivity which also factors in how a student does in school. A sad student may not have any motives to continue studying in school.


Affirmative assertion #1: In 1974, court-ordered busing was the only strategy that could have desegregated Boston's public schools.

Evidence: Neighborhoods were segregated by race and kids went to neighborhood schools.
Evidence: Boston built new schools, but they were still segregated.
Evidence: Boston got worse after the law passing of desegregation.

Affirmative assertion #2: Students and society benefit when more children are able to attend racially integrated schools.

Evidence: There were psychological benefits, so students do better academically and socially.
Evidence: Students are able to negotiate today's increasingly global economy.
Evidence: Students feel more safe, less lonely, and less harassed by peers.

Affirmative assertion #3: To create a desegregated school system, a judge should be able to tell parents where their children must attend school.

Evidence: If students go to school closer to home, the schools might re-segregate.
Evidence: The judge's plan was to create schools that included students from several neighborhoods.
Evidence: The new plan would make students go to bad schools in their neighborhood.
Debate Round No. 1


Question number #1 If a school has interacial students, doesnt this make bullying easier for students since they have to spend a whole day near each other?

Question number #2 Shouldnt a parent choose where they want their kids to go to school , and no some judge?

Question number #3 Shouldnt teachers also be interacial and not just the students?


Question #1: If you're a black student in the suburbs or a white student in the ghetto, does it matter what neighborhood you live in to decide what school you have to go to?

Question #2: Why can"t students in the outer city have the same education as the students in the inner city and vice versa?

Question #3: Would segregated school be more skilled than a resegregated school?
Debate Round No. 2


Answer number #1 It does matter where a student lives because they are switched into school based on where they live.

Answer number #2 Student cant have the same education because of how the goverment funds the school system.

Answer number #3 You cant tell if a segerated schools is automatically more skilled than a resegerated school based on test results.


Answer #1: If a school has interracial students, then it would be easier for students to get along because students feel safer, less lonely, and less harassed by peers.

Answer #2: A parent does choose where they want their children to go to school, but it"s also up to the children to approve if they want to attend there. Everyone should know a judge, but a judge won"t help parents and children decide where they end up in school, which would be the department of education.

Answer #3: Teachers are interracial in school, but that doesn"t change how they teach the students.
Debate Round No. 3


rebuttal to assertion #1 Busing isnt the only way to desegrate schools and fix all the schools problem because students were still doing bad in school.

rebuttal to assertion #2 There are some school with like 90% whites and are still doing good in school. This just proves that segregating isnt the only key to helping students do good in school.

rebuttal to assertion #3 If a judge decides hundreds of students fate in school that could turn out bad because he could easily bias one side more than another.

Good luck tana


drugs forfeited this round.
