Last Wednesday night, MTA’s debate team traveled to Yeshiva University High School for Girls, known as our sister-school, Central, to debate against twelve other yeshiva high schools. The topic they debated was whether or not business owners could refuse to provide service to those who violated aspects of their religious beliefs. Each pair of debaters consisted of one experienced debater and one novice. Because of this, the teams weren’t experienced enough to win any major awards; however, the novices learned immensely from practicing and debating with experienced debaters in an experienced debate. Because of MTA’s stellar set of novice debaters, the team was able to win over half of their debates. This debate was a learning experience for all debaters, and both novices and experienced debaters are looking forward to the upcoming DRS debate and MTA’s own Great Debate.
