First-time voters in 2016, those 18–20 years old, had no informed experience of any time when Barack Obama was not President. They were toddlers when terrorists attacked America and America invaded Afghanistan and Iraq. They were in grade school when Obama was inaugurated.
The only chance we have that these youths could make informed voting decisions about our leaders rests on the quality of their educations about our history, about American values, about competing political philosophies.
In other words, almost no chance at all.
