Student governments take on a wide range of responsibilities, and a role can vary greatly depending on the school and its needs. The group of student that are elected to join student government focuses on representing the best interests of the student body and help shape the student experience. It is common for students to think that their student government is not necessary, but without student government, many of the aspects of the high school life that they enjoy exist and continue because of student government.
