As Centre College prepares to host next month's vice presidential debate, several groups want to prepare Kentucky students for the event. The Secretary of State and the non-profit Kentucky Youth Advocates have partnered with students from Bellarmine University to create lesson plans for Kentucky teachers. The lessons focus on basic civics and include information on political debates.
This year's vice presidential debate at Centre College is shaping up to be a policy wonk's dream. Both Vice President Joe Biden and newly-minted Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan are longtime lawmakers who are steeped in policy.
The format for the vice presidential debate to be held in October at Centre College in Danville has been announced. The non-profit Commission on Presidential Debates says the Oct. 11 debate will cover both foreign and domestic topics over 90 minutes.
