Legacy students among those sending video letters to next president


Whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton wins today’s election, some Legacy Charter students are among teens across the country that have compiled video letters to the next president of the United States.

PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs challenged youth around the country to voice their concerns to the next president.

Students from Roar Productions, a student reporting lab led by Neena Kumar at Legacy Early College High School, interviewed their peers, and some of those video letters are among the more than 140 letters from around the country that addressed themes such as student debt, gender inequality, race and education. In the letters, students also asked for solutions to issues such as drug addiction, tensions with the police, the foster care system and preserving Native American cultures.

Selected videos will air on PBS NewsHour Election Day coverage today.
