Inequalities in debate occur in debate camps, private vs. public schools, and different public schools.

On average, debate camps cost $2,528 to $4,325 with the most expensive ones being $6,000. To put this in perspective, that’s 41%, 69%, and 96% of the average monthly income of a full-time employee.

Public schools

8 in 10 private schools offer a debate program while 2 in 10 public schools do.

Nationally, we spend about $1,000 less per pupil on districts serving the most impoverished students. That’s a $5 million shortage for poor districts a year.
