This past semester, Richard’s high school seniors completed a project where they had to mount campaigns on behalf of actual presidential candidates. At the end of the project each student completed an essay in which they were asked to answer this question: Explain why the outcomes of the Presidential primaries and general election matter to you. From Bernie-love to decades-old anti-Clinton right-wing talking points to genuine fear of Trump and Cruz, Richard will be exploring their responses and speculating on what they indicate about this newest generation of voters.
