From the Bronx to Yale Highlights the Power of Speech and Debate in High School

The Guardian recently published this great mini-documentary titled From the Bronx to Yale that follows some kids in South Bronx through some 'speech' and debate competitions that will help them succeed in life.

High school students from Democracy Prep school in the South Bronx, New York, compete against young people across the US at a ‘speech’ competition at Yale University, a form of competitive acting. Last year’s champion, Stephen, is hoping to regain his crown, but ambitious newcomers are coming up behind him. It’s not only trophies at stake, this could be their only chance of a college scholarship.
