A camp I may, (And hopefully) be attending for debate has let out the resolution; it is
"Resolved: The 50 states should adopt a system of school choice for private and public primary and secondary schools"

However I don't understand what on earth that's supposed to mean.
Help?

Also if I am accepted into the camp, you can expect me to debate this a lot before next month.

Yeah, what Puck said, the primary opposition tends to come from the teacher's union. It is a far easier position to be pro.

From what I was told, this is pretty much what the resolution is. They also clarified that it mean students weren't going to be restricted to only going to schools within their district.
Thanks for the link Puck!

I'm surprised a Texas camp had one like that, being the most policy-ish state in the nation.

It's in Oklahoma, and it's a nation wide camp.
