America's Legislators Back to School Program
Above, State Representative Gene Reynolds recently addressed Glenbrook seniors, explaining the importance of civic involvement. The meeting was held as part of Legislators Back to School Day, an initiative of the Louisiana Legislative Youth Advisory Council.
Louisiana House Members will join with State Senators and other legislators from around the country in this civic education program sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). State Legislators across the country visit schools and classrooms to promote representative democracy. The goal of the program is to educate young citizens about what it is like to be a state legislator and what the Legislature does, get these young constituents' thoughts and perspectives, and inspire their active involvement in the democratic process. It is also designed to build personal links between schools and legislators and provide Legislators an opportunity to observe what is going on in schools.
