This week's article is brought to us by the Oakland Press website, www.theoaklandpress.com from Thursday, October 29th.
The headline read, "Students experience State Supreme Court".
I'm a political science major and am proud that Oakland County's k-12 education made the front page news this week.
Students from Pontiac, one of Michigan's most dangerous cities, had a field trip to the state Supreme Court where they learned about Michigan's criminal justice system.
Civic education is not dead!
This article was newsworthy because it is important that as a community we introduce the criminal justice system to young people when they aren't wearing a suit and tie standing in front of a judge because of a crime they have allegedly committed.
It's a new perspective.
It's a good perspective.
Way to go Pontiac k-12--props.
Until next week!
