I think high school students should be required to take a class in which they must debate and write reports on controversial current events. The debates would present viewpoints that most students would normally never be aware of.

I'm am writing a report for philosophy and would appreciate everyone's opinion.

I think that a critical thinking class, of which debating would be a key component, would be a better requirement.

I one time won a debate on abortion by turning to the crowd and finishing my point with...

"Ladies, pregnancy will destroy your figure, and giving birth will destroy your cooter."

I then proceeded to waggle my eyebrows.
