26 Jun 2015: politics.co.uk: We need to teach schoolchildren free speech before university beats it out of them

"Tomorrow we hope to prove that the censorious reputation students have been garnering is far from the mark. Twelve schools from across the UK will meet at the British Library for the Academy of Ideas' Debating Matters competition, a weekend of tough yet open debate on difficult contemporary topics where, most importantly, free speech is encouraged."

UPCOMING EVENTS

Thursday 6 December:
Leeds NHS Digital Debating Competition at Thackray Medical Museum

Thursday 17 January:
Southampton Championship at Solent University in partnership with NATS

Wednesday 13 February:
Kent Championship at MidKent College
