Central High School Debate

Kansas City, MO – Senator John Kerry, presidential advisor Karl Rove and senate majority leader Bill Frist were all debaters in high school. So some students from Kansas City's Central High School want in on this elite activity. Central's squad has shaken up the national debate circuit this year. They rap their arguments to music, and make the case that the activity itself is rigged to benefit privileged kids at expensive schools. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross followed Central's team to a tournament in Omaha.
