8th graders hold up their country placards during a United Nations simulation
As part of their Civics class, 8th graders acted as members of the UN Security Council (UNSC) and discussed policy options for dealing with the Iranian nuclear crisis. Specifically, they debated the pros and cons of military action versus economic sanctions. Although a final resolution was not reached, the students learned about how the UNSC operates and how it attempts to deal with various threats to international security.
