Debating Matters: Baby Boomers

In these fascinating highlights from the Debating Matters competition semi-finals, sixth form students debate the motion “The baby boomers have squandered their children’s future”. Intergenerational inequality is all the rage and in this timely debate the students are asked tough questions by a panel of judges concerned with content not style. Through convincing and well informed argument, we learn there was no golden age and today’s economic woes are something this generation need to deal with, rather than playing the blame game.  Graveney school won the semi-final in opposition to the motion.
