Response from Emily Smith

Schools can help become innovative incubators for active citizens in our democracy by educating students about what patriotism is and how they can practice good patriotism. Additionally, schools should instil in their students the belief that every individual can be an agent for change and that their contributions to our democracy matters no matter how small.
