The merits of direct and representative democracies

In this two-part critical challenge, students explore the concepts of direct and representative democracies, and assess the merits of both by recommending a decision-making process for use in a given situation. Students then write a persuasive letter to the principal recommending either a direct, representative or blended decision-making system for use in the school.
