Or is everyone scared or pissed off at the new topic? If you haven't heard:

Resolved: Public high school students in the United States ought not be required to pass standardized exit exams to graduate.

Thoughts? And who might be willing to stage the first DDO debate on said topic?

Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

IT SUCKS! The most unique arg I have is related to having a universal standard on the Neg. I have a semi-unique arg on the Aff, but still, GWAAAAAAAH!

I like the bullsh*t abilities that the Affirmative has in this topic. Initially, the negative has a grand advantage over the AFF, but if you argue something like I am:

-No US school system should even be in place

-Standardized tests brainwash and destroy young minds

It may catch the NEG off guard...

Of course, if you want to be COMPLETLY abusive, say the tests should be standardized to the standard of whether they exist. That way, unless the aff is no tests at all/no education, you win.

For reals? I see the Aff as having a completely unfair advantage - all data and research shows that standardized tests are bad for kids.

That and any pre-disposition the judge will have will be against standardized tests, not for them.
