Chapter 2: High Schools

I read with interest Chapters 2 and 3 of Section 1 relative to using high school and college students as poll workers.  My experience with this source has not been a productive one.  We found that this group had great difficulty enduring the 14 hour election day.  Very few came back for a second dose of democracy in action.  As hard as we work to train them, it would be nice to keep them for at least two years.  These chapters did, however, provide other ideas of how to make this concept work.  We'll keep trying.

Again, this section is interesting and has useful suggestions. I have very positive experience utilizing high school students. I discovered additional motivation materials to utilize in the recruitment process.
