Democracy in Action

Sixth graders and their teachers are on a three-day study tour of our nation's capital. Yesterday, the boys visited the Air and Space Museum, the American Museum of History, and took an evening tour of the monuments. Today, they met with staffers for House Speaker Ryan.

Later, the boys will meet with staffers for New York's Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, and will visit the Supreme Court to continue to learn about the workings of Congress and the Court. This year the boys have been studying American history, and this trip is a culminating activity where they have the opportunity to experience democracy in action.
