Political classwork: High schoolers campaign for credit

Students in Advanced Placement government classes in Nevada County high schools got political this weekend.

High school students in the honors classes are required to volunteer eight hours to a campaign of their choice, Bear River AP Government teacher Molly Starr said. Some students carried signs Saturday for Congressional candidate Ben Emery, while others volunteered at Republican headquarters.
