  •  I can attest. History and civics are LESS a focus (0+ / 0-)

    We had 3 years of History/government; However, as you say, it was focused on mundane topics. Very little time was spent on the intersection of history and government, the applicable debates, and merit of civic involvement.

    Actually, our Gov teachers used to take the classes to the polling places on election day - but someone made a stink about it and that got canned (something along the lines, "don't be introducin' my kid to politics in yer classroom").
