  •  Well, that's essentially the reason we had Civics (19+ / 0-)

    classes in Highschools.  The students had to pass that class or fail and not graduate.  Now it isn't a requirement.

    We wonder why people assign insane ideas to the intentions of the Founders, and believe crazy stuff about a Constitution they have never actually read.  The dumbing down of America continues at breakneck speed.

    Some of the comments of the Republican presidential candidates tell me that they would prefer that only a few (wealthy of course) people get a college education.  In Texas they talked about deleting 12th grade!

    If our children don't understand the basics of how our government is run, and the basics of American history, how can we expect them to run our country correctly when they become adults?  I love it that my local Occupy has American History 'classes' several times a week.  It's fantastic.
