    I never get into a discussion with the students about a particular election or its candidates. I don't find it worthwhile, as the students are not really old enough to be informed about important issues, rather, they just voice back the opinions of their parents. Not sure of the education value of any of that.

    I do like to discuss the election process when studying the legislative branch. Studying this process as a way of finding out about our country and its principles makes more sense to me than having discussions with students about candidates they know little about, only what they hear from their parents.
