Students and teachers throughout the Boston Public Schools seized the "Super Tuesday" Presidential primary elections in Massachusetts as valuable opportunities for teaching and learning about government, politics, elections and civics. At the Boston Adult Technical Academy, Advanced Algebra II students applied their lessons about linear equations to track candidates' progress and make predictions about the outcomes. Other schools held "mock elections" to give children a chance to cast ballots for their favorites candidates. Pictured here are Alisha Cooper and Samanta Miceus, fifth graders at the Haley Elementary School in Roslindale, greeting and checking in their classmates during the school's mock election. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) earned the most votes at the Haley School polls. Students at the Hamilton Elementary in Brighton also held a mock election, as reported in the Allston-Brighton Tab.
