Taking schoolchildren seriously

I was a judge last year in one of the 'pilot' competitions for Debating Matters, a new schools debating competition that takes the views of the participants seriously, and emphasises passion and persuasiveness over formal procedure. It really took me back to being a sixth-former myself and thrashing out what I thought about the world in endless debates with friends.

Although my conclusions were hopelessly wrong!
