Surveys point to more talk on politics in schools

To the editor:

I am a student at Triton High School sending a letter for a school civics project regarding incorporating more politics inside of the school system instead of somewhat hiding them.

I created a survey for parents and students. The one regarding the parents included questions asking them of their political party, and how they felt about the opposite party.

Many of the answers that I received said things like, “I can tolerate them, but they aren’t my favorite people.” Others said they did not like them, but could still be around them.

That, to me, is very sad. I believe that we could help restore the relationship between Democrats and Republicans by incorporating politics more into schools.

To see if other students agreed with me, I sent out a student survey. Most of the student surveys all had the same answers. They said incorporating more politics into schools would help them better understand political parties and better understand why some people chose to be Democrat or Republican.

They also said they believed it would help deteriorate hate between the two political parties by showing young people that both parties want what is best for the United States, they just have different views.
