Joseph B. Cavallaro I.S. 281 competed in their first NYC Urban Debate League Middle School Tournament in the Bronx. The topic was “Should Spain grant Catalonia its independence?” Out of 100 middle schools, Team Cavallaro ranked 7th overall. One of their teams won all 3 of their competitions. They will move on to the next tournament in Manhattan, and the topic is a challenging one: “Should the U.S. abolish the capital gains tax?” If they do well in that tournament, they will qualify to compete in the city championships. Congratulations to Principal Bender, Mr. Valentine and Ms. Matera the debate coaches, and the IS 281 Debate Team!
