    I had civics from grade 6 to grade 10. And I am sure we were taught more about American polity than Americans. We had en entire class about the American Constitution in my law school. Which was in India.

    A super power, the oldest democracy and does not teach quality civics. How can it happen? No wonder, people like trump and republicans, who deny civil rights to their citizens are elected in the position of power.

    I recently came across a Republican complaining about the "socialism" being taught in schools and colleges. They said (paraphrasing) "so many classes are brainwashing students with socialism, like social studies and sociology."
    I weep for humanity when grown adults think social studies and sociology are "socialism" just because the words sound slightly similar.

    Just to be clear, social studies has four main parts: civics, history, geography, and economics. And sociology is literally the study of human society.

    So if the Supreme Court said that everyone has an equal right to education does that mean that they have a right to equal funding? I mean how can education be equal if schools are funded differently and have different budgets?

    Wow. This is why I got the middle school students on icivics.org, but since it did not help with test scores I was asked to stop.

    Every year I work my local and every four years, national elections. Last election I was eating outside during my break and I overheard 2 young ladies joking on their way into the building,

    Girl 1: I’m totally voting for Trump
    Girl 2: That would be so funny!
    Girl 1: I know right!
    Girl 2: I should do it too! I mean, it’s not like our votes make any real difference anyways

    🤦🏽‍♀️wouldve loved to talk some sense into them but we cant talk about the candidates 100ft within the polling location

    all Americans are loosing meaningful education- we're money driven, which means dumbing down a slave work force- wage earners- (the majority of citizens) to make the wealthy wealthier

    why would the state teach you how it works? it operates as it does because you don't know how it works. all you have to do is make a cross on some paper every x-years depending on what you liked on TV more.

    also, taxes…why should you know how to do them? there is an industry living off of you not knowing. also, that way they charge you whatever…good luck fighting it.

    c'mon, go with the flow ppl, this is how it's supposed to work. don't fight it.

    Maybe if we had a civics class, the women down the street with 4 kids by 3 different baby daddies, a food stamp card, a Medicaid card, 3 brothers in jail and a raging opioid addiction she can’t get treatment for, wouldn’t be a proud republican. #voteyourinterests

    American education, other than if you're wealthy, generally get a very limited education. Most schools prioritize studies toward the standardized tests, because that's their funding. Some countries don't allow private schools and all are equal, so the wealthier citizens want the schools to do well, and looks as if it worked anyway, all get quality education regardless if income at home. They all go to school together, and in turn when get out in the world, most aren't as willing to screw over their less wealthy schoolmates they've grown up with.

    I have been asked FIVE TIMES "did you drive here?" (from Australia). And the last person was the lady who runs the UPS/Fedex store in Roanoke VA. You sure need more than just civics you lot!

    We had Civics classes in middle and high school in Scottsdale, AZ. I never thought there were schools that didn’t have this. 🤭 I just thought the people that didn’t know things simply didn’t know because they CHOSE to be ignorant; like the people that refuse to read or watch any news or more than one news source.
