Chief Sealth International High School will have higher level of political education than normal on Nov. 1 as they stage a mock election, voting their preferences and in addition create short documentaries about how high school students are feeling about the upcoming 2016 presidential election.
As if that wasn't enough, Senator Patty Murray will visit to take a look at the Technology Education and Literacy in School (TEALS) program at Sealth. It's a chance for Sen Murray and others to see how the TEALS program is helping provide high-quality computer science education to students in public schools in Seattle and the state. The program itself isn't new, but Murray's interest is in the newly-passed Every Student Succeeds Act that she wrote with her Republican counterpart (the nation's new K-12 law) which provides new support for TEALS.
