We had some very interesting reports on the figures and costs it takes to run a dual-track school system, and there are very few schools in the state that have both tracks. The real problem comes when in the same schools — overworking staff and teachers — so there are staffing issues that get interesting.

It was a beautiful experience for those who are already in the political arena as well as those aspiring to become involved. The activities were very informative, and the panel discussion allowed us the opportunity to tell how we got involved, our successes and our pitfalls, which may help them not make the same mistakes as they try their hand at the political arena.
