Do you know what today is? Another school day canceled because teachers want a break? Big Foot took over the world? Think again. Students do not have school today because of Election Day. Many teenagers are oblivious to why they get a free day but could really care less. The main reason? Teenagers don't think elections matter to them. In order to vote, a person must be 18 or older. Teenagers today do not seem to take a big part in politics. Sure, everyone has opinions about who is running for office and what they believe in, but teenagers seem to think that politics are about nothing but fun. Although if teenagers today had more of a say in what laws took place, they would probably think a little bit differently when Election Day rolled around.

However, Dr. David Leaman worries the club would provide nonfactual materials designed to support an agenda for gay and lesbian rights. Those could be detrimental for students questioning their sexual identity, whereas Leaman feels many of those teenagers need professional counseling.
