Jellick students get out the vote
Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman were busy with the election. Besides, 10-year-olds don't get to vote.
So students at Jellick Elementary decided to play the candidates' parts in a mock debate on Nov. 2 in Rowland Heights.
Alex Wu got the Brown part, while Hannah Chung stood in for Whitman. The 10-year-olds offered a lively gubernatorial debate in front of the students assembled outside on the playground.
"Meg" Chung said she supported better teaching for California kids, while "Jerry" Wu insisted he had a better platform on education.
While the great debate didn't sway any of the little voters, the election event did give the GATE students a chance to dip their toes in the political world.
