Students dove into a variety of issues for 2012: marriage equality, the NBA's "one-and-done" policy, international aid, tenure and teacher evaluations, and standardized testing. Students proposed the creation of a federal agency that oversees a professional exchange program, a new system for rewarding tenure, and a shift towards portfolio testing instead of standardized testing. Students also advocated for the legality of same-sex marriage and for allowing players to enter the NBA draft within one year after high school graduation, after completing three years of college education, or at the age of 22.
