    It would be funny if Jaboukie made that shot on the first take and had to re-shoot it.

    Who makes these decisions anyway? Who decides what a school can and cannot teach?

    I am 73. I had a Civics/Government teacher in high school who, was NOT openly gay, and looked like Ichabod Crane from the original Disney cartoon, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow 1949 (crooked nose and all). He got a lot of ridicule and inattention in classes because of his style. It was like the school placed him there to discourage learning about government. So it goes.

    As long as civics doesn’t mean teaching “patriotism”…

    In Florida we have a government class that teaches us important supreme court cases the rulings of those cases and the affects it had in america. We learned amendments and our rights and it was required to sign up to vote (if you were able to). Everyday, we discussed political news and by the end of the class we wrote a letter to our house rep or Senate depending on the issue you had and told them something that was a problem in our state or district. All the test for that class were short or long responses and you had to know your stuff. It is crazy to me that, that isnt the norm for the rest of the states.

    (But I did go to an accelerated (earned my associate’s when I graduated high school) school so I’m not sure that is the standard of florida but I do know you have to take half a year of a government to graduate)

    I’m Indian and when I talk to my American friends, I realize that I know more about US policies than them, which is kinda hilarious 😀

    I know when I was in school I hated my Civics classes but they did teach me something and there were things that I needed to know. Also when I was in school Civics classes were called government classes not civics.
    Why are they not teaching Civics to our children in school they’re not teaching our kids how our government works?
    I did not know that this was happening! But then I don’t have any kids in school anymore. This is disgusting but these kids have to force the school to give them Civics classes!
    Kudos for the kids! Anb absolute bullshit to the fucking schools!
    My God I knew our education system was shit but I didn’t know it was this bad!

    I am quite shock they don’t have civics. In India, we generally learn Civics, History and Geography together as Social Studies from Grade 6 till 10.

    Back when dinosaurs ruled, I had at least 5 years of civics while living in the USA. Most students hated it. I loved it and I‘m not even an American. Of course children should learn civics!
