HOUSE DEMOCRATS

Snohomish High School students research and propose new laws

In a unique program started by the late civics teacher, Tuck Gionet, students from Snohomish High School research a problem and draft legislation to fix it–then come to Olympia to talk to representatives and senators about their ideas.

Those students came to Olympia again on Jan. 14 to learn about their democracy not from a textbook, but first-hand.┬áHere’s a short documentary about Tuck Gionet, his students and the program he created.
