Hello! You are part of a community of millions who seek out Democracy Now! each month for ad-free daily news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for our in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the voices of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We produce all of this news at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation. We do this without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on support from viewers and listeners like you. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $10 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make a monthly contribution.

But what are students going to find once they get to school? What subjects will they learn and how will students be brought into the learning process to make education engaging and inspirational?

Guest:
• Seyi Fayanju, a 13-year-old student at Verona High School in New Jersey where he will be attending 9th grade. Last year, he won the prestigious and highly competitive national Geography Bee championship and joined the US international Geography Bee team this year.
