  •  My local high school is going about it very badly. (0+ / 0-)

    I posted this (first-time) diary late last night about mock elections at my local high school.

    I had a little (ok, a lot) of trouble figuring out how to post the documents and received some very helpful hints on how to do it better next time. I also received some great suggestions on how to approach the school.

    But the reality is that my complaints will probably come too late to make any difference. I didn't get a copy of the document until late Friday night. Don't get me wrong, I will still be making the complaints. I'm just so sad that our students have been so poorly informed for this mock election on Tuesday. I hope I am not breaking protocol by posting here. I am eager for a few more eyes and some sympathy.

    I am thrilled that schools are involving and educating kids about their civic duty, but when it's poorly done, it is disappointing. With all the resources available, this shouldn't even happen.

    So I am also so thrilled to see so many kids making the right choices around the country especially in the traditionally red states... SO THREE CHEERS... HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY! HIP HIP HOORAY! Things are still trending in the right direction in other places if not in my own hometown. :)
