[eDebate] RESOLVED a great debate documentary

Dear Mr. Ellis and the edebate community:

I watched RESOLVED on HBO the other night.

Putting aside the socioeconomic context and political aims of the 
filmmakes, this is one kick-ass movie about debating.  My wife and kids 
watched it and I think for the first time ever my wife actually 
understood what it was like for me to be a policy debater when I was 
young, and we've been married 22 years, and we both met in law school, 
but I don't think she really every understood the phenomenal rate of 
speed at which policy debaters speak, the enormous amount of evidence 
they carry around, the national nature of the circuit and the frightful 
intensity of the will to win of the vast majority of the competitors. 

I was extremely heartened by the story of the two inner city debaters 
not so much because of their background, but because in watching them, I 
was watching two kick-ass, take no prisoners, outstanding fine 
debaters.  I got to enjoy their rounds as the camera was following them 
and by the end of the movie, I wanted to watch more of their rounds.  It 
was the same feeling I used to get when I judged good teams in the 
past--you just want to hear more and more from them. 

I hate to bring this up by contrast, but THE GREAT DEBATERS is not 
nearly as good a movie about DEBATING.  Insofar as that movie also 
centers on debates about race and racial equality, I'd rather hear the 
cutting edge critik arguments from our two heroes in RESOLVED than the 
hackneyed equality of school spending arguments trotted out in THE GREAT 
DEBATERS which the Supreme Court has already rejected in San Antonio v. 
Rodriguez more than 35 years ago (_____ US ____ 1973) and which was my 
first high school debate topic (and maybe Oprah's too).

Factual point:  Debate was three persons per side in 1935.  Your first 
two team members each gave a constructive, and then your third team 
member gave one rebuttal argument.  The two person format shown in THE 
GREAT DEBATERS with two constructives and two rebuttals is factually and 
historically wrong.  I have numerous transcripts of college debates from 
the 1930s from older textbooks which show what the format was at the 
time, and it eludes me why they would have made such a critical 
mistake.  In point of fact, the movie shows the James Farmer character 
sitting on the sidelines because only two debaters can debate, when in 
fact, he would have likely been the third debater on a three man team, 
and if they rotated all the members through the three man team, would 
certainly have debated far earlier than the spring of his first year.

THE GREAT DEBATERS is still a fantastic movie and I recommend it, but 
for minds ready to be opened, watch RESOLVED instead.

> Hard Times at  Douglass High....it is a documentary that focuses on
> Baltimore's Frederick Douglass High School, the debate team is involved, but
> its not about them, its about the school. Itwont have as many of your
> friends in it as Resolved: but if you liked Resolved this week, you should
> watch Hard Times at Douglass High Next week.

> Alan and Susan Raymond spent one year filming in Frederick Douglass High
> School, which has a rich history of successful alumni, including Supreme
> Court justice Thurgood Marshall. Shot in classic cinema verit? style, the
> film captures the complex realities of life at Douglass, and provides a
> context for the national debate over the controversial No Child Left Behind
> Act, focusing on the brutal inequalities of American minority education,
> considered an American tragedy by many.
>
> Douglass principal Isabelle Grant oversees a staff of teachers that is
> two-thirds non-certified, while many are substitutes unqualified to teach
> their subject areas. Threatened with sanctions, or even closing, unless
> student scores improve in annual standardized tests, the faculty tries to
> find workable solutions to chronic problems of attendance, lateness and
> apathy among students, many of whom come from poor backgrounds and broken
> homes, and lack the most basic reading and math skills.
>
> Due to an achievement gap of four to five years below grade level, ninth
> grade students present the greatest challenge, requiring intensive
> intervention by the already overwhelmed teaching staff. By the end of the
> school year, 50% will drop out. Grant and her staff struggle to raise state
> assessment scores as a Maryland State monitor continually watches over
> Douglass with the threat of a state takeover.
>
> At the same time, there are reasons for hope. The high school boasts an
> award-winning music program, named after Douglass graduate and jazz great
> Cab Calloway, that includes a choir, a drumline marching band, a jazz combo
> and an orchestra. The basketball team was Maryland State champion two of the
> last three years. And the outstanding debate team consistently wins trophies
> at the Baltimore Urban Debate League. Students Sharnae, Jordan and Matt tell
> stories of struggling to overcome the enormous challenges of splintered
> families and peer pressure as they navigate their high school days, offering
> a reminder that education is inevitably an achievement of people, not
> policy. With the support of Douglass, these students have demonstrated
> resilience in the face of formidable odds.
>
> Eventually, Douglass fails to make the adequate yearly progress required by
> the No Child Left Behind Act and the city and state wrestle for control of
> the school. This is typical of inner-city schools that cannot meet the
> demands of the federal law. By 2007 one in four of the nation's public
> schools failed to show improvement under the No Child Left Behind Act and
> was threatened with sanctions.
>
> Alan and Susan Raymond's other HBO and CINEMAX credits include "How Do You
> Spell Murder?," "Children in War" (Emmy(R) for Non-Fiction Prime-Time
> Programming), "I Am a Promise: The Children of Stanton Elementary School"
> (Best Documentary Feature Oscar(R) as well as Emmy(R), DuPont and Peabody
> Awards), the Oscar(R)-nominated "Doing Time: Life Inside the Big House," "Into
> Madness" and "Elvis '56." The Raymonds are also the filmmakers of the 1973
> PBS documentary "An American Family" and its follow-ups: 1983's "An American
> Family Revisited" and 2003's "Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family."
>
> HARD TIMES AT DOUGLASS HIGH: A NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND REPORT CARD is a Video
> V?rit? production; produced and directed by Alan Raymond and Susan Raymond;
> written and narrated by Susan Raymond; cinematographer and editor, Alan
> Raymond. For HBO: senior producer, John Hoffman; executive producer, Sheila
> Nevins.
