About us

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 Boston public high schools and middle schools and to train BPS teachers to use argumentation as part of their classroom practice. The BDL’s mission is to integrate argumentation and debate into Boston Public Schools to develop critical thinkers ready for college, career, and engagement with the world around them.  In partnership with BPS, the BDL has recently articulated an ambitious strategic plan to expand the opportunity of debate to every BPS middle and high school student over the next 5-7 years.
