A Challenge from former New York City Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein

Dear Student,

Every day our political leaders take positions on issues that affect you, your family, and your city. For example, President Bush thinks U.S. troops should stay in Iraq, while some Senators feel that they should come home. So much is at stake with issues like these, and now is the time for you to take a stand.

I invite you to make your voice heard. Your job is first to research important issues, such as gun control and subway searches
