LegiSchool Town Hall Meetings

Upcoming:

April 12, 2019

Think about the changes that have occurred in the higher education system. Are high schools doing an adequate job of preparing students to enter the college system? As a student, do you feel comfortable about the college applica-tion process? What are your thoughts on college tuition and what changes would you make? What are your thoughts on standardized testing? Experts in different areas of the higher education system will come together and have a discussion with students, gathering feedback from student’s thoughts and ideas on potential changes as well as explaining what direction California is headed.

 

Social Media: Friend or Foe?
February 7, 2019

There’s a big chance that you’re reading this on a smart­phone. Smartphones are all around us and are owned by children and adults of all ages. Students in high school are on their phones constantly updating, livestreaming and chatting with their friends on social media. Social media can be a great tool for advertising, socializing and sharing information. But what happens when it backfires? How safe are your pictures, videos, passwords, and other informa­tion? How can you control another person’s bullying when they can access you through multiple social media arenas? Although social media and the internet have great qualities, they can also lead you to a convoluted and twisty path. How do you think that bullying should be handled in social me­dia? How do you feel about social media and the direction it is going? Do you like the idea of constantly being tracked by different apps, or does it make you feel uneasy?
