Kojo For Kids welcomes D.C.P.S. government and history teacher Erve Pyram to the show on Monday, November 2 at 12:30. Listen live by streaming the show on this page or by tuning in to 88.5 FM in the Washington, D.C. region. Kids can call in with questions at 800-433-8850.

How can someone get more votes than her opponent but still lose the presidential election? Why is it so hard for D.C. to become a state? How come people in jail can vote in some places but not in others?

American elections and government can be confusing!

But it’s important to understand how we elect our leaders, and how they can be held accountable. From the president to the town clerk, they make decisions that affect nearly every aspect of our lives.

As we approach an election that most voters consider one of the most important — if not the most important — of their lives, we welcome D.C.P.S. government and history teacher Erve Pyram to Kojo For Kids. He’ll help us understand how American democracy works, and why it sometimes doesn’t.

We also welcome the students of our school of the week, D.C.’s Columbia Heights Education Campus, where Mr. Pyram drops knowledge every day.

This show is part of the “Kojo For Kids” series, a Kojo Nnamdi Show segment featuring guests of special interest to young listeners. Though Kojo has been on WAMU 88.5 for 20 years, this is the first time he has had the opportunity to reach out to an audience of kids, most of whom until recently had been in school during our live broadcast. We’re excited to hear from our youngest listeners! Join us!
