The young are impressionable and firmly within the mental grip of educational institutions, and those who control them. Since educators have for the most part lived within the sanctuary of educational institutions all their lives, most of them have a tenuous grip on the realities of the larger world and are often quite delusional. As such, they're not the people to listen to when it comes to things like politics. Lowering the voting age would amount to an amplification of the delusional ideas of teachers. If anything, voting age should be raised because it takes life experience for people to break through the idiocy they learned in school and develop sensible ideas about the world.
If the old heads did right when they were young it would be a perfect world...however they seem to be making it worst...i like to think of the last few generations as the "nothing generations" where just survival was impressive
Also dont discredit yourself as an educator...children have way more sorces then grand pa
