No folks this is not about the Confederate general. Drop the middle initial and
you have Dale Midkiff who teaches debate at a California high school and the
kids who take it are looking for an elective to graduate. But the class itself and the class as constituted by the kids who take it are much more than that.
Debate and Midkiff previously taught a class at a military academy sees it in
military terms. It's war and the battlefield is ideas. To make sure of your
position on any issue you must think and debate is to make you think.
I can see that a lot of people who simply accept facts and memes without
question will not be happy with Debating Robert Lee. I can assure you it
won't be shown at film night at Pat Robertson's Regent University.
Some nice performances by Midkiff and his young cast. I'd single out Beau
Bridges and Melinda Dillon as his parents and among the kids Daniel Letterle and Billy Kay.
This one is worth a look.
