Rob Bell to give civics lessons in local schools

Tomorrow will find elementary school students in Greene and Albemarle receiving a civics lesson from Delegate Rob Bell. The Republican is scheduled to visit four elementary schools to discuss his role in the Virginia Legislature and how the legislature’s activities affect students’ daily lives.

No word on whether the presentations will include the word "lobbyist," nor whether cautious parents will be allowed to opt their children out of this potentially politicized educational experience.

The schedule: 8:30am at Ruckersville Elementary, 9:30am at Nathanael Greene Elementary in Stanardsville, 12:15pm at Broadus Wood Elementary in Earlysville, and 1:30pm at Baker Butler Elementary. Bell will also visit Jack Jouett Middle School at 2:30pm for a "Virginia Flag Presentation."
