Little Legislators Learn About Government

April 15th, 2008 by flanews

The state Senate was full of little legislators Tuesday. Fifth grade students from Madison Academy toured the Capitol. They held a mock session in the Senate chamber. The tour was sponsored by the Florida League of City as part of its program to promote civic education. Students said it worked.

The funniest part today was the mock session and getting to vote and place amendments and bills, said 5th Grader Sarah Baltzell.

The kids that do this program, they go back home and they take a different interest in the things that are going on in school and leadership roles. Its really nice to see that happen, said Myra Valentine, the Mayor of Madison.

The students also had a chance to meet lawmakers and visit with them in their offices.
