At Great Falls High School in Montana, students are encouraged to know much more than their choice of president this election season. During the school's mock elections, students are asked to vote on federal, state and local races as well as ballot measures. "There is confusion on the ballot issues," senior government teacher Gregg Dart said. "They'll say, 'What am I looking at and what does it mean?' They're learning to be careful in terms of the ballot initiatives."
