DA Debaters Cross Examine at Loomis!

Sonja Krusic O'Donnell – January 15, 2018

This happy group of Deerfield students traveled to Loomis Chaffee Sunday to engage in Oregon Style Cross-Examination rounds on the resolution: “Resolved, that in the United States of America, formal agreements, including Non-disclosure Agreements and Out of Court Settlements, should never include a provision that a victim of sexual harassment is to remain silent about his or her sexual harassment as part of the agreement.” Novice and advanced debaters from 12 schools were given a packet of documents and an hour to prepare! Ask any of the team members how it went. What would be your argument for or against such a policy?
