This debate is about whether or not children, in the course of learning under public education, should be expected to experiment among fellow classmates to define what qualifies as civil.

First round is acceptance. My opponent, in affirming the notion of classrooms as laboratories of civic responsibility, accepts burden of proof and should start debating in R1 immediately following acceptance. Also, to keep timing fair since Con must wait for Pro to begin in R1, Con is entitled to make new arguments in the final round while Pro is only entitled to rebuttals.

Sources should be kept to a minimum unless talking about jargon that requires exclusive knowledge. Otherwise, this is a primarily philosophical debate that intends to remain unprejudiced towards particular successes being extrapolated to the whole. It should also acknowledge the diversity of societies out there, so suggesting a particular form of civic responsibility to be aspired for is also prejudiced.
