Letter: Voting in schools is a learning experience for students

The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

This is in response to Brandi Carpenter’s letter on voting in the Peabody schools (”Voting interrupts children’s education,” Oct. 23).

Voting in schools has been taking place for years, and, in fact, the teachers in the city do make this day a learning experience. Perhaps you and your family should move to one of the four states you cited in your letter if this means so much to you. The school department and the city itself do have the children’s best interest at hand, make no mistake about that! Also, with such negativity toward the school system, maybe it is time for you to give up your seat on the School Committee.
