Secondary Forensic Programs: Can They Survive Current Pressures?
Trank, Douglas M.
Secondary school forensic programs have long been under pressure from a variety of sources who question the educational value of such activities. Three relatively new issues will affect the growth and development of these programs: the "back to basics" movement, the spending ceilings imposed in local school districts by state legislatures, and the scarcity of qualified and competent forensics directors. Most coaches need to be much better prepared to respond to these issues, they need to develop educationally justifiable cocurricular programs, and they must be prepared to work more closely together as a forensics community.
