Should people who can't spell "vote" be allowed to write headlines on a newspaper website?

Shouldn't we expect someone to realize that most public school students are not of voting age?

It would be nice to see how the students of HCDE feel about this...out of the mouth of babes may come the truth...Even Jesus said "let the children come"...this would be a good lesson on politics. Correction: great lesson on politics!!!

We could see how good the character education program has impacted the students. We see how it has affected the adults.

Just what we need...more people voting themselves "bread and circus". Just another pack of school-bred liberals-in-waiting.

Someone said, "A man who is not a Liberal when young has no heart; a man who is not a Conservative when mature has no head."

I voted "no" in the poll but on further review, it would be a valid stance to allow high school seniors to take part in school board issues. These would be the people coming of voting age (if not there already) and have the experience of depth within the system. It also could prove to be an incentive for students to become seniors as it helps introduce them to the diplomatic process. In addition, it gives greater voice to the student population the board it ultimately there to look after
