All the cool kids do!

On March 23rd, Glee's Darren Criss will kick off the first ever Democracy Day in partnership with Rock the Vote and the National Education Association. The idea is to promote awareness about our government and the upcoming elections to classrooms around the nation.

Darren will be on hand at Hamilton High School in L.A. to help launch the program with a "one-class-period program that uses pop culture, video, discussion and mock election to teach young people to engage as active citizens in the election process."

Of the program, Darren told sources:

“The voting process can be a bit overwhelming and at times confusing, particularly for first time voters. I’m very excited to be a part of such a comprehensive effort that both educates and encourages young people about the importance of their vote.”

Agreed! Young people are the voice of the future, so they should have a say in the present. If this program can help them make more informed choices, then we're all for it!

Hopefully, this will be something that catches on!

Good luck with it, Darren!

    I appreciate his enthusiasm but it is not write fair that left leaning organizations interrupt our children's school day with the intent of brainwashing the children with their liberal rhetoric. I am an independent who is socially liberal with conservative economic positions-I would be just as irritated if a religious group came in to preach their politics during my child's school day. The schools should be teaching the mechanics of government not indoctrinating them with liberal leftist positions.

    The election process in this country is a joke. Electoral colleges should be banished. One vote per person.

    This organization lost my support during the last presidential campaign when they tossed aside any notion of non-partisanship and openly supported the Democratic candidate. They have no more place in our schools than Rush Limbaugh.

    Can they start the educational process by letting these people know that our country is NOT a democracy. It's a Republic. Big difference; look it up.

    OMG i wished i went to that school! sooo jealous! i disagree, i dont think that the left has brainwashed in school, of course i am liberal myself, but it just depends what school u go to. i went to a liberal arts elementry school and yes, we had a whole unit on why gay is okay (but it is…) and now i go to a conservative high school were we learn about why our economy shouldn't be so closely monitored. if a kid is smart enough, they wont let differing opinions change their moral code. someone could give me a four hour speech on why its a good idea to have the death penalty and I would still be firm-rooted in my belief.
