Why Is Debate Important?

Debate helps develop skills that enable and develop more engaged citizens, discuss current political and global issues, understand opposing views, make informed decisions and think critically. These skills are helpful not only in peoples’ academic lives, but also at the workplace and in society.

Students who participate in debates benefit from better grades and higher literacy scores, drop out of school less frequently, gain communication skills applicable in the workplace, develop leadership skills and think about political issues. Debating can also help people think more creatively and express themselves.

Traditionally, debating is seen as a form of verbal swordplay: very ‘win or lose’ scenario, where the winner won by convincing the other parties they were in the right or by completely undermining the opposing argument.

A well-constructed argument is the executive’s equivalent of weaving a spell. Debating in the workplace is the chance to cast the spell, improve it, or transform it into an entirely new and more powerful enchantment.
