Wyden Visits with Students at Oregon High Schools
Some people say that young people today are disengaged from politics, but if Oregon high school students are any indication, that just isn't so.
In Oregon this past month, Senator Wyden visited with students at Southridge, Tigard, Franklin, and Wilson High Schools. Students asked and Senator Wyden answered. Questions were thoughtful, provocative, and on a variety of issues including the NDAA, foreign and domestic policy, and access to education.
Senator Wyden appreciated and gained valuable insight by hearing policy ideas, prescriptions, and questions from the next generation of leaders. Can’t wait for the many more high school visits to come!
