Just days after midterm elections, high school students met with Albuquerque Public Schools officials to talk politics and civic duty.
The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, or SuperSAC, heard from the panel, which also included teachers, a University of New Mexico professor and Board of Education member Candelaria Patterson, on Thursday.
The big message of the day: don’t be indifferent. Get involved.
Nick Estrada, a Volcano Vista High student, asked the panel how younger kids can participate in politics if they aren’t old enough to vote.
