On Friday, November 5, 8th graders self-organized and moderated a panel discussion on MA Ballot Question 3 as part of their social studies and social justice curriculum. They reached out to state officials on both sides of the debate and recruited Rep. Denise Garlick and Puja Mehta, a representative from Senate President Karen Spilka's office, to join the discussion. Students in Grades 6-8 attended the panel and asked questions about the proposed law and its implications. This student-driven project is a great demonstration of our middle school students’ leadership in the CRS community, and provided an opportunity for healthy discussion around politics and civil rights.
