Matthew Halton High School Teacher Jill Klapp was impressed with the fervor with which her Social Studies 30-1 students approached the task of taking on the United States Presidential Debates. All 26 students were involved, in research, social media, debate or commentary. During a 90 minute debate they had to answer questions on foreign policy, health care, planned parenthood, job creation, stimulus plans and illegal immigration, Syrian refugees, foreign policy with ISIS, and the ethical implications of imposing liberal freedoms in non-liberal countries, "Like in Iraq, granting freedoms to women and children," explained Klapp in a recent interview. "It was a big one. They did well."
