Grace is on the school leadership team, but she is upset when the group can’t agree on what they should spend their bake sale money on. After a trip to Washington DC and an encounter with a new student, Grace has a new idea for the money.
If you want to introduce your students to how democracy can look in their classroom, this could be a useful book. It is not as user friendly as McNamara’s Vote For Our Future book, but it does help students apply the ideas in their own lives.
