The Upper Unit students have been getting ready for the upcoming United States presidential election by studying the electoral process in the US. They have compared party platforms, learned about the electoral college, studied the candidates’ positions, learned about several minor parties, and are casting their own votes this week as part of the Kids Voting USA program.

By becoming more educated (future) voters, students are also learning the language to talk about political differences in a respectful and honest way.
