    Student councils are not elected or allowed to represent citizens or allowed to act as lobbyist in our state laws. Students brains are made of mush and unable to make a rational decisions and are not empowered to speak for their parents and adult decision makers. Students are biased by teachers and educators who are not representatives of our country or government and students should not be allowed to voice any opinions or statements. They are allowed to visit the chambers and witness the process of rights and laws being processed but its a big mistake to let them think they are smart enough to be offer nay kind of rational statements. Students empowered is a lie and fake hoax they should not be mislead by Communist to think and act on their own without any kind of experience or exposure to individuals rights and liberties until the are fully graduated from an accredited high school to begin the process ov being educated about their country and rights. Why force children to lie and act out fantasy the education system has embedded in their minds? Its the beginning of mental instability of students and suicidal guilt because they are failures as children.

    Been there and done that. I was a high school student from East High School when the State School Board had its Student Advisory Committee back in 1973. That's 45 years ago. It seems things don't change much.

    A hybrid idea would be to continue the Student Advisory Committee and have that committee nominate and select a high school student to be a non-voting member of the State School Board. As a high school student our focus back in 1973 was on student rights and responsibilities, including free speech (student protests against the Vietnam War) and due process issues (student suspensions and student privacy rights).
