Can you address the process of selecting class officers? 3 seniors lost their bids for offices they had held for the past several years. Rumor has it that all 3 of them WON the popular vote by a landslide, but the advisers decided to veto it and chose other candidates. Can you speak to why these students were good enough to hold office for 3 years, good enough to be on the ballot, good enough to WIN the popular vote but are not allowed to hold office? I was told that they asked to see a vote count and were denied because the final decision on who would hold office was up to the “discretion of the advisers.” Why do you let students vote if faculty members pick the reps because they feel they know better? It seems we should be teaching our students that with the power of a vote comes great responsibility. IF the candidates were slackers…IF they were not up to the job….IF they were elected because of popularity, then the voters would pay for that decision by not having the prom that they want and consequences and a great lesson would be learned. Isn’t it worth if for our students to learn that lesson now, in high school, before they are voting for our town supervisor, our congressmen, or our president? It would seem an assembly worthy event to introduce the candidates and have the advisers share what roles these officers would be playing and decisions they would be making on their behalf. Are these the students you want representing you? Are these the students you trust to come up with solid a fundraising plan for your class? Are these the students that you see as the face of your class? If they answer, “yes” on election day, then so be it. Please talk to these points so that our community can help our young people understand why their vote didn’t matter.
