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.

Ethan Haynie believes it’s the next president’s job to remind the nation of it’s melting pot origins.
