Around the country, from Boston to Chicago, students are demanding a say in how their teachers are evaluated. In Prince George's County, Maryland, three recent grads will likely get a say in a lot more! Raaheela Ahmed (18), Edward Burroughs, III (19) and David Murray (20) just aced the school board primary in the nation's 20th largest school district and are now the front-runners heading into the November general election.

Says one parent, "I think the youth are crying out because of the failures of the adults. They see what is wrong...I think they want to be part of the solution."
