The Indiana-based news and current events website
Newsandtribune.com has published an article covering my recent visit to Greenville Elementary School. Last month,
I spoke to a group of fourth-grade students about the political process
in the United States. By focusing on the election process and history,
and avoiding the controversies surrounding this year’s election,
I hoped to impart a hopeful and positive view of politics in the U.S.
The students’ knowledge was impressive, to say the least. Parents
and teachers should be proud.
This recent trip to Greenville was part of the Indiana Kids’ Election
(IKE) program, in its ongoing efforts to provide students K-12 with hands-on
political education. While the fourth graders I spoke to are still years
away from voting in U.S. elections, they will have future opportunities
to participate in IKE programs such as mock elections and educational
events. IKE is funded by the Indiana State Bar Association and the Indiana
Bar Foundation. For more information about this program and upcoming events,
During my visit, the topics of conversation ranged from the Electoral College
to the constitutional provisions for elections. One female student mentioned
learning about parties other than the Republicans and Democrats. Inspired
by the prevalence of female candidates in this election, she was hopeful
that if a woman wins the election, more girls might run for president
in the future.
