Amazing opportunity for A Level Politics students

25th November 2021

Last Thursday, A Level Politics students had the amazing opportunity to take part in a live digital surgery with two ex - Congress members from the USA. Students were able to ask questions to The Honorable Larry LaRocco, Member of Congress, (1991 - 1995, D-Idaho) and The Honorable Tim Hutchinson, United States Senator, (1997 - 2003, R-Arkansas). 

Larry LaRocco is a former democratic Member of Congress who represented the First District of Idaho in the 1990’s.  While in Congress, Mr. LaRocco served on the influential House Financial Services Committee and the House Natural Resources Committee.

Tim Hutchinson is a former U.S. Senator from Arkansas, having served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and one term in the U.S. Senate. He has spent nearly two decades in elective office, having started his career as an Arkansas state representative in 1985. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1992. Tim became the first Republican ever popularly elected to the U.S. Senate from the State of Arkansas four years later.

Students asked a range of questions from 'do you agree with mask and vaccine mandates?' to 'In the last few years with all the issues within the Republican party are you losing faith in your party, and do you think the factions can reunite to secure a victory in the next Presidential election? ' 

One of the students attending remarked ' it was an eye-opening experience which was very interesting, and I would recommend to other students to enhance their learning in a practical way.' Another stated, ' it helped me understand the American Political in more depth as they spoke about issues like the Supreme Court, COP26 and lobbying.'
