Salt Lake City–With help from City Academy history and civics teacher, Gareth Orr, the school’s students held a civic conversation about election issues Monday evening, Nov. 7. Students shared their thoughts and then invited the public to join in this open discussion.
According to Orr, “For the past several weeks, our students have joined in study and debate on the issues of the election and the issues that animate them as they approach voting age. They had a lot to share.”
Orr also noted that, “Whatever political persuasion people brought to the conversation, this was a meaningful opportunity to share with and to invest in the education of the voters of this and our future elections. Our students led us in practicing a civic virtue cherished at City Academy but not always modeled during this election campaign: we can disagree without being disagreeable.”
