'Founding Fathers' debate for students at Marlboro Memorial Middle School

A group of 8th-grade students treated to re-enactment of Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton


MARLBORO — Monmouth County middle school students got the chance to experience a meeting and debate between two of America's most famous founding fathers, as re-enactors playing Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton held a back-and-forth dialogue at Marlboro Memorial Middle school on Tuesday.

Glenn Healy, a social studies teacher at the school, received a grant to bring members of the American Historical Theatre to the school for the performance. Healy said he wanted history to come alive for his students and for them to have a chance to participate in a debate between the founders over ratifying the constitution.
