Babylon High School students in Christopher Ryan’s Advanced Placement U.S. History class had the chance to speak with a political leader about current events when they were selected to take part in a special taping of Cablevision’s “Meet the Leaders at School” television series.

During the event, the students engaged in a question-and-answer session with Congressman Peter King and observed his interview with host Patrick Halpin. The topics of the discussion surrounded the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including the aftermath, role of government officials and representatives and current policies.

The event enhanced the conversations the students were having in class and tied into their recent visit to the 9/11 museum in New York City.
