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.

Xavier Coonrod asks the next president to remember that Americans who are too young to vote still depend on them to make decisions representing their interests as well.
