Affirmative #1: Desegregation - This is the aff we will be reading vs. Classic Teams
Advantages: Desegregation and Solvency
Plan:

The United States federal government, via Section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment, should regulate K-12 schools that receive public funding by implementing a law that:


n Requires states to affirmatively further racially integrated education

n Creates clear statutory language that confers rulemaking and regulatory authority to the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights or an independent agency directed by a career employee, rather than a political appointee, to provide federal oversight and enforcement

n Authorizes and requires action by the Department of Justice for states that refuse compliance

n Funds deliberations that both document the current racial inequities in educational opportunity and provide useful data that may assist states and localities in fostering racially inclusive educational opportunities

n Funds research, development, and policy replication to preserve and strengthen federal, state, and local efforts to protect equal access to educational opportunities

n Includes the provision of transportation and construction funding to suburban schools, while also increasing school funding for inner-city schools



Affirmative #2: Title I
Advantages: Equity and Solvency
Plan:
The United States federal government should substantially increase its funding of elementary and secondary education in the United States through Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and create a replacement formula for distribution of funding that targets concentrated poverty, rewards progressive state funding, and rewards state fiscal effort.
