Next Education Matters, ‘Student Voices, Election 2012,’ leads in to VP debate at Centre College

For Release: 2012-09-17 16:27:00

What do today’s young people think about the upcoming election? A special edition of Education Matters, in partnership with Kentucky Youth Advocates, features a panel of Kentucky high school students discussing the election issues that matter most to them. The program airs Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8/7 p.m. CT on KET immediately before the vice-presidential debate at Centre College in Danville, which begins at 9/8 p.m. CT on KET.

“Student Voices, Election 2012” features guest host Renee Shaw and six student panelists from Danville, Lexington, Louisville, and Olive Hill talking about topics that are important to them in this year's election. The program also goes behind the scenes in Danville and at Centre to look at the activities and preparations that are taking place leading up to the debate.

Teachers can visit the Education Matters website at ket.org/educationmatters to access a packet of classroom materials on this year’s election. The classroom materials were developed by Kentucky Youth Advocates and education graduate students at Bellarmine University.

Education Matters is a KET production. More information about KET programming and education services, as well as how to support KET, can be found at ket.org.
