our democracy

By Kai R. from Eureka High School in California

Democracy is essentially ruled by the people. The name is commonly used in forms of government where people take part in government decisions. For example if people meet to create laws or change existing laws that is democracy. Democracy is also when people choose their government instead of there being a set family line.

I chose this picture because it shows democracy affecting a school. Democracy is known to positively impact enrollment in schools. Democracy has been implemented into schools in the form of student government. It is also shown by effectively evolving students in important school events.

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
