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.

College affordability is a top concern for Cyncere Perston, who is working as hard as possible to earn scholarships for college and hopes the next president will work hard to make access to higher education more equal.
