This week when we set up Ms. Gizmo in Brooklyn near Borough Hall we attracted the attention of a new group of voters. Montessori students from all over the country were visiting with their teachers, and several groups stopped to vote in the penny poll and discuss tax dollar allocation. (Click on the photos for larger images.)
The results were slightly different from polls done at other Ms. Gizmo events in this location — with more pennies in the “Military” tube than usual. Boys in the classes were allocating more of their tax money to the military than does our usual crowd of adult passersby.
