With just a month left until November 8, it’s almost impossible to avoid news about the U.S. presidential race. But middle schoolers on Milwaukee’s south side are focusing on their own campaigns in the race for student council.
It’s a Monday, after school. Twenty kids running for St. Anthony’s student council are gathered in a classroom to work on their campaigns.
Some are clacking away on laptops preparing speeches, others have gathered art supplies and big sheets of white paper to make campaign posters.
