Communications Arts High School | San Antonio, TX

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

While Elijah Astorga-Garcia and Kayleigh Barnhart share a lot in common, they will not be paid the same unless the next president solves the gender wage gap.

Produced by Brooke Cunningham, Ciera De La Cruz, Brinton Freeze, Alexandria Gonzalez, Michael Huerta and Antonio Martinez, students of Communications Arts High School in San Antonio, Texas. Instruction provided by SRL Connected Educator Heidi Whitus. Mentor support provided by PBS NewsHour.
