Who We Are & What We Do
We are the award-winning Policy Debate team at Dr. martin Luther King Jr. College Preparatory High School. We participate in the Chicago Debate League (CDL) made up of schools throughout the city of Chicago and compete based upon the annual national policy topic.
Policy debate provides students with unparalleled 21st century skills in reading, research, critical thinking, public policy analysis, evidence-based argumentation, civic engagement, teamwork and communication. Debate is research-proven to increase GPAs, ACT scores, and graduation rates. Debate prepares students for college and career success, and creates a culture of excellence.
