  • Morning Education: Teens to cast their ballots

    Politico - 12/19/2014

    Generation Z is headed to the polls for the first time this presidential election and the youth vote will likely prove critical. So Northeastern University surveyed more than 1,000 young people aged 16 to 19 to see where they stand on the issues. Seventy-one percent said they believe in free health care, 63 percent felt that everyone has a right to become a U.S. citizen and 67 percent said they’re concerned about being able to afford college. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed said they planned on attending a four-year college. Of those not planning to attend a two- or four-year college after graduation, nearly a quarter said they weren’t attending because it was too expensive.
