Kansas City Montessori students to participate in Model UN
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Sixteen students at a Kansas City
Montessori school will travel to New York next month to participate in the Model United Nations.
The program is a simulation of the main bodies of the United Nations and other multilateral organizations.
The Kansas City School District says the sixth-graders from Border Star Montessori will get a chance from April 13-17 to consider issues on the United Nation's agenda.
Participants make speeches, draft resolutions, and negotiate with allies and adversaries.
