Response from Brittany Alm, Junior, Old Dominion University (ODU) who
is planning on getting a Masters in Education.
“As a K-12 student, I remember being engaged in political conversations and lessons when a presidential election was drawing near. I don't remember being educated on how to be an active citizen until my senior year of high school when I took Government.
My teacher really kept our class up to date on what was happening in Virginia politics and in National politics. He stressed the importance of staying politically knowledgeable so that when we use our vote, it's going towards someone who is going to do the best for our city, state, or country.
