Prep Vote: Yes Romney, No Props

In the fourth Idaho Student Mock Election, high school seniors across the state cast online ballots last week, and today the results are out: The students narrowly picked Mitt Romney for president and backed two state constitutional amendments, but overwhelmingly turned thumbs down on the three school reform measures, Propositions 1, 2 and 3, rejecting Proposition 3 by 81 percent. Students at 36 schools cast ballots, from Grangeville to Homedale, from Sandpoint to Wendell. Among the schools where seniors cast ballots in their high school government classes were Bishop Kelly High School in Boise, Cambridge Junior/Senior High School, Eagle Academy and Coeur d'Alene High; a total of 1,745 ballots were cast/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Funny how tech-savvy high school students in Idaho overwhelmingly reject Superintendent Tom Luna's computer experiment, Proposition 3, while backing Mitt Romney. Thoughts?
