The presentation is bias. Now kids are listening to republicans being bashed by the democrats that put this together. They’re to young to understand our political BS.

Yes because the schools are way too bias and force their liberal opinions on the children.

Political view and religion should be left out. If you want to teach them to vote use a cartoon characters to be at their level of understanding. Bulling is real and this would definitely target

Elementary aged kids will only mimic their parents. They don't have the maturity or wisdom to understand all the issues that we"adults" make political.

Yes, from elem. school. Maybe allow it in HS. Elem. kids aren't savvy enough to form political opinions of their own, and will just regurgitate their parents' opinions. Keep politics general for them.

First, let kids be kids, do NOT start indoctinating them in grade school. Especially now when everything is politically biaised. Learn basic for a good start to life.Old fashioned 3 R's.

Absolutely! In fact the ed system has failed terribly in all subjects! Shame on Scholastic News to present a bias, rather than what each party represents. Even more disappointing!

I think that there is a happy medium to this. As a Republican I believe that it is important to teach our kids, students, and youth about our democracy. But we shouldn’t show them the bad till jr high

I believe that issues concerning values a young mind may be influenced with should come from that young persons family not the state or government. This included politics.

I think kids need to learn to be good citizens and part of that is being involved in the political process. There is already too much apathy in our country when it comes to politics.

The sooner they learn about the political system the easier it will be later in life and make them better informed on political issues

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.
