Democracy in America 
 In 1831 Alexis de Tocqueville left France in order to study prisons in the United States. What resulted are the 
ninety-four chapters of the book 
Democracy in America.  

In 2013 12th Graders at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia became modern day Alexis de Tocquevilles. The projects below are the product of their 
investigations into the state of 
Democracy in America.
