Following the historic 2008 Presidential elections, Weekend Edition Saturday will take a look at how educators around the country are processing the election results with their students in high schools, colleges and universities around the country. We'll hear what teachers and professors are thinking as they head out to vote on Tuesday and then what their students have to say in discussions after the election results are in. As part of the story we'll follow Cosby Hunt, he's an American History and Government Teacher at Bell Multicultural High School in Washington, D.C. We want to hear from educators and students in other part of the country. Are you an educator or student? Tell us how you voted and why?
And on November 9th, Weekend Edition Sunday will check back with two listeners who were part of our race & politics series. Liane Hansen speaks to Greg Harden of Rochester, N.Y., and Trish Callahan of Portland, Maine. Harden, who is white, spent the majority of his life living in the suburbs. Callahan has a black biological father and white mother, but grew up in a white family after she was adopted. How did they vote? What do they expect from the next President?
