Audience members said:

“Listening to these teenagers discuss the tax system with more knowledge and nuance than any politician I’ve heard lately.”

“I am amazed at this panel’s ability to tackle a wide range of difficult issues. How can we, in school and society, facilitate the transfer of these conversations to the “next level”? These students give me hope; how do we guarantee their leadership in the future?”

“I love that none of you toed a party line tonight.  You showed maturity, nuance, humanity, and understanding. In a political debate, you’d be criticized for inconsistency.  How do we shift the paradigm so that THIS is the model for political discourse in the US?”
