Mission Statement

To measurably improve students’ academic achievement and their expectations of themselves by engaging as many BPS high school and middle school students as possible through academic debate


The Boston Debate League (BDL) is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with the Boston Public Schools (BPS) to support academic debate teams in local high schools and train BPS teachers to use debate as a regular part of their classroom practice. The BDL is now beginning a massive expansion, evolving from an organization that changes the lives of a few individual students to one that transforms the academic culture of entire schools and the district itself. Our focus over the next three years is to go deep in existing member schools, building large debate teams and supporting hundreds of teachers as they use debate to transform the academic atmosphere and expectations in their classrooms.
