Why should schools participate?

Participating in the Student Mock Election is an ideal opportunity to incorporate the Learning Results units regarding civics and government into the classroom. The mock election can be utilized to teach students about many of the areas outlined in the Maine Learning Results including constitutional principles and the democratic foundations of national, state, and local systems and institutions. Students will learn how to exercise the rights and responsibilities of participation in civic life and to analyze and evaluate public policies. This understanding entails insight into political power, how it is distributed and expressed, the types and purposes of governments, and their relationships with the governed.
