At the invitation of Assemblyman Ed Ra, students in Leslie Rubenstein’s Honors Participation in Government class at Carle Place Middle/High School had the opportunity to sit in on a legislative session of both the New York State Assembly and Senate and tour the New York State Capitol building in Albany on May 30.  

Assemblyman Ra visited the class in mid-April when students first began their studies of New York State government.  In the ensuing weeks, students learned more about current issues in New York State, and are now developing citizen action plans on a topic of their choice. 

“Seeing the Legislature in action was a wonderful opportunity to connect our classroom studies to real life,” said Ms. Rubenstein.
