November 7, 2012 - By Erica L. Green
If 2,500 Baltimore middle school students have their way Tuesday, President Barack Obama will be re-elected, children of some illegal immigrants will pay in-state tuition rates, same-sex couples can marry and gambling in Maryland will not expand.
The results were announced Monday by the students of City Neighbors Charter School, who through a "Voters of Tomorrow" initiative conducted a mock vote in 29 city schools on key choices facing the state and country on Election Day.

The cafeteria pizza at Hamilton Elementary/Middle might not seem like anything special to the students there. But to Morgan Dean, it's heavenly. Biting into her piece of the pie yesterday, the 12-year-old noted the warm, soft crust and the fact that the cheese on top was fully melted.
At City Neighbors Charter School in Northeast Baltimore, where she is in seventh grade, "the cheese tastes kinda like plastic," she said. Morgan and her City Neighbors classmates are on a mission for better cafeteria food.
The Open Society Institute invited City Neighbors Founder, Bobbi Macdonald and Principal, Mike Chalupa to write a blog on their Audacious Ideas site.
This was immediately following the First Annual Progressive Eduaction Summit which was organized by the City Neighbors Foundation.
