Should U.S. high school students know at least as much about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Federalist papers as immigrants passing a citizenship test?
In a growing number of school systems, having such a basic knowledge is now a graduation requirement. But states are taking different approaches to combating what’s seen as a widespread lack of knowledge about how government works.
The removal of civics classes from high school curriculums across the country is not an accident. It is a calculated decision to create young adults that have no idea how government works and should work. While not the entire reason, this is part of the reason that our colleges are populated almost solely by spoiled, selfish fucking pussies that believe in authoritarianism and the State. This is a much needed change.
