How does your donation help?
An argument into every school bag provides argumentation education to Estonian counties to improve young people's argumentation, critical thinking and self-expression skills.
The latest results of the PISA test showed that only one in seven Estonian 15-year-olds makes a difference between fact and opinion. In today's saturated information space, young people need knowledge to help them make informed choices.
Through donations, we provide mentors to primary and secondary school teachers to help integrate the debate method into the lesson and / or to support starting the debate hobby education classes. Mentors help teachers in schools all over Estonia, also giving young people with fewer opportunities access to high-quality argumentation education.
The mentor's workload is about 5 hours a month and based on the teacher's average salary, the cost of one academic year is 675 €. In addition to donators, the mentoring program is also supported by the Estonian Debating Society and schools. The mentor contributes
- 1 hour with a donation of 5 €,
- 2 hours with a donation of 10 € and
- 5 hours with a donation of 25 €, ie the entire month.
The aim of the Estonian Debating Society is to improve the quality of argumentation, critical thinking and self-expression skills by supporting the availability of debate education and reasoned public debate.
The organization is included on the list of income tax incentive non-profit organizations.
