One of my friends shared this true story of a teacher in the Nashville, Tennessee area. It is one of the best theories of why Obama won the 2008 Presidential Election.
Here is what the teacher said:
We are worried about “‘the cow” when it is all about the “Ice Cream”. The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching 3rd grade. The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.
