C-SPAN's "50 Capitals Tour" brought their Campaign bus to Jackson Monday.
The interactive learning center stopped by Northwest Jackson and Bailey APAC Middle Schools.
"The biggest takeaway, I believe, is going to be the resources available - not only for the teachers, but for the students," said the Principal of Northwest Jackson Middle School, Kevin Culver. "They learn to do quick searches on the website - the C-SPAN website - they're able to search any and everything dealing with government.
The Public Affairs Network is funded through satellite and cable networks like Comcast, which they say allows them to provide non-commercial, editorially-balanced coverage as a public service.
"Yes, we do cover national topics, but we get input from people all over the country, who can call in, tweet in, text in, email in - and tell us what they're thinking, instead of us telling them what to think," said Joel Bacon, a Marketing Representative with C-SPAN.
At 8:30 Tuesday morning, the bus will be used as a production studio outside the Capitol, asking Attorney General Jim Hood what he believes the most important issue is in the state of Mississippi.
