I think what Mr. Washington has done is more than commendable, it is wonderful! He realized what anyone who sees the movie "The Great Debaters" will realize, and that is that we must encourage and promote excellence in educating our young. We must not let tradition die when it has so much to offer. Great minds must be made to think in ways unfamiliar and reach heights not yet known. Debating does just that.
