For me, A is too narrow, B is intriguing, C is optimal.

Appropriation seems like it's very broad, so long as the interpretation of "process" is kept reasonable this could be an intriguing option. Seems like it could get either boring or technical.
I've been advocating for a higher education resolution in the past and as a college student this is a debate that I would really enjoy coaching and judging, but I do think the ambiguity regarding an actor is a huge weakness. I think it can be really valuable experience for students to learn to overcome the cons that are mentioned in the resolutions overview (that many of their judges will have first hand experience). Furthermore, I might disagree with the resolution overview on this con topic because most of the sourcebook writers will have perfect experience to make sourcebooks valuable, most coaches and family members will also be able to provide advice, and usually older siblings as well, to say nothing of the many students who probably already involved in dual enrollment courses who would have first hand experience that way.
I generally distaste the medicare and social security resolutions that I feel like I have heard suggested in the past. Yes, it's probably very valuable for students to look into these issues, but it brings up the same issues as con that are put to the education resolution this year. I tend to think it will get too complicated and really hard on novices and newcomers to debate.
I think there is a lot of good content offered by Resolution B and that's probably what I'd vote for if I had to choose.
