Ferguson: Current event lessons for students

I believe that having discussions throughout the classrooms in this country while the Ferguson issue is still going on is a great idea.

I strongly agree with Christine Armario’s article “Nation’s classrooms reflect on Ferguson decision” [Nation & World, Dec. 2].

In order to change the problems in this country to make a better country we have to learn from issues that are going on now and try to figure out how things can change. Discussing this kind of issue will not only teach the students about current events, but also how the court system in this country works. Our court system has been changing since it has been put in place.
