A Teachable Moment at NFA: Young Voters Group Watches VP Debate

BW, who is the sort of teacher you wish you had and that you hope every kid has at some point, adds this about her 10th and 11th graders:

At one point I went over to one group of kids, partly expecting them to be discussing various social things while they watched, and found them deep in a debate about Palin, the issues of the race, what they think will happen and who they agree with regarding what to do about Iraq/Afghanistan.

Remember these kids when folks start bashing teenagers for not caring and for choosing to remain ignorant about things beyond IM.
