Top Legislature Participation

America's Legislators Back to School Program has proven to be a great success with legislators, teachers and students.  More than 1,400 state legislators participate each year reaching over 320,000 students.  The event is designed to teach young people--the nation's future voters and leaders--what it's like to serve as an elected official: the processes, the pressures, and the debate, negotiation and compromise that are the very fabric of representative democracy.  By entering the classroom and listening to students' perspectives, legislators are able to initiate a dialogue while letting American youth know that their ideas count.
