Indiana's gubernatorial candidates -- Democrat John Gregg, Republican Eric Holcomb and Libertarian Rex Bell --  will visit Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis Tuesday morning for the first of three debates scheduled by the Indiana Debate Commission.

The town hall-style meeting, is designed partly as an educational lesson for students throughout Indiana in partnership with Indiana Kids’ Election, a program sponsored by the Indiana secretary of state, Indiana Department of Education and Indiana State Bar Association.

The audience will be composed entirely of high school students, teachers and school administrators who will hear the candidates’ positions primarily on educational issues, with some questions posed by students. University of Indianapolis assistant professor of political science Laura Merrifield Albright will moderate.

WFYI will produce a live webcast of the debate, and you can it watch here
