The Dallas Urban Debate Alliance is committed to providing Dallas ISD students with the transformational skills found in academic debate.  From critical thinking, advanced research techniques, argument formulation, refutation, and questioning strategies, to finely honed listening and oral presentation skills, we believe that debate provides students the opportunity to become informed leaders in their schools and communities and to make a difference in their ability to advocate for themselves and others.
