BISB Holds Mock Vote on Scotland's Independence

September 19, 2014

BISB students were on the same page with Scottish voters Thursday, voting against the country's independence in a mock election.

BISB students and staff members throughout the school participated in a mock election Thursday, designed to engage students in the historic vote taking place in Scotland on Thursday.

Throughout the day, students discussed and debated both sides of the independence vote, questioning what an independent Scotland would mean for the global economy and whether the country would choose to stay with the United Kingdom.

In the end, BISB saw the same results as Scotland itself- with 55 percent of voters against independence and 45 percent for independence. Scotland saw the same percentage of voters choosing to stay with the United Kingdom when results were released Friday morning.

The vote was a great learning opportunity for students, said BISB teacher Mr. Bowry, a Scottish citizen.

"The narrow margin of victory here at BISB showed many of the students' natural support for independence and a nation's self-determination," he said Friday. "Personally, I was surprised that the 'yes' campaign did not win out (at the school)- but perhaps that was to be expected in a British International School.

"Ultimately, it was wonderful to hear heated political discussions occurring throughout the corridors of BISB."
