Election Day is a teachable moment for young students


How did your candidates fare in Tuesday’s election?

Like most dedicated voters, you probably consider voting an important duty regardless of which candidates won. Some members of the younger set also learned that lesson during the Nov. 4 elections, and they looked happy doing it.

The elections were a teachable moment at Cesar Chavez Learning Center as students in grades K-5 learned the importance of marking a ballot and voting their conscience. No matter that the election was to select their favorite teacher and teacher assistant. It was the idea of voting and participating in the democratic process that counted.

No word yet on the outcome of the contest or whether a runoff will be required. Meanwhile, check out the gallery from the Chavez election:
