Lucky Palm Beach County Students To Tour Lynn Before Presidential Debate

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Class officers from schools throughout Palm Beach County will be taking part in debate prep — before the real presidential debate later this month — at Lynn University.

According to the School District:

Palm Beach County Student Government and debate students from around the county will participate in a roundtable discussion Friday, October 12, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

In anticipation of the final presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney hosted by Lynn University, Palm Beach County students will gather to discuss pressing issues as Election Day approaches.

Dr. Robert Watson, Professor of American Studies at Lynn University, will serve as moderator for the roundtable. Laurie Cotton, Social Studies Administrator for the District stated, “The students will converse on real-world issues. Presidents past and present have encouraged citizens to discuss issues of the day. The District encourages students to engage in debate because the freedom to do so is one of the great strengths of a democratic society.”

Students will consider issues of mutual concern including topics they think will be the focus of the candidates, the impact of social media on voting patterns, the lack of civility in politics, and how to engage young people in elections. Following the roundtable, high school students will be treated to a tour of the Lynn University campus.
