2012 Mock Elections

Across the United States, presidential candidates campaigned and debated about their views on several major issues. In Yeshivah of Flatbush, we did just the same. Over the past few weeks, the AP Political Science class, under the guidance of Ms. shelly Kaplowitz, has made several moves to inform and campaign to the school on behalf of both candidates through ads and campaign posters. On November 6th, Sharon Grossman and Miriam Einhorn debated as President Obama and Governor Romney, respectively. The debate, which was live streamed in each classroom, was moderated by two of the Yeshivah of Flatbush Phoenix reporters, Isabel Fattal and Andrew Hersh. After much preparation, the candidates delivered significant answers to the questions they were asked. Overall, the students learned about the rising issues of our country as well as both of the presidential candidates' plans and points of views. ~Jeanette Eliezer
