WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) held a videoconference today with fourth-grade students and staff from Cranbrook Elementary School, located in Columbus. The students are currently studying the legislative process and the three branches of government.
“I always enjoy meeting with students whether at home in Ohio, in our nation’s capital, or even on videoconference. The Cranbook Elementary School students’ thoughtful questions and commentary is yet another reminder of the excellence of our state’s schools and faculty. Their parents and teachers should be proud of these inquisitive and engaged young people,” Brown said. “That’s why I will continue to fight for the resources needed to ensure that their future remains bright. I hope that our videoconference today will encourage these students to become active participants in our democracy.”
