Whenever the school funding lawsuit against top state officials and county tax collectors is decided by Vice Chancellor Travis Laster, its outcome will likely have an impact on every school district in Delaware.

But the state’s school districts are, for the most part, sitting on the sidelines as the case plays out.

For a second straight week, Enlighten Me takes us to WMPH and Mount Pleasant High School in the Brandywine School District, one of the two schools we’ve partnered with on our to our Generation Voice Youth Media project

Students there - and at our other partner WMHS at McKean High School in the Red Clay School District - produce a bevy of interviews and projects on a variety of topics throughout the year. And from time to time we like to highlight some of that work here on The Green.

This week, we share with you a pair of thoughtful features produced at Mount Pleasant’s WMPH.
