Learning Basic Civics Week in Education

Learning Basic Civics Week in Education

Your weekly report on education news.

Finally, a trend in education that conservatives can get behind.

This is also promising.

This is less encouraging.

Compare and contrast.

Both in Illinois.

Delaying the inevitable.

There should be consequences for this.

Outrageous.

Not a good sign.

Asking the important questions.

After memorizing 999 personal pronouns, learning about the 682 genders, the fundamental ramifications of CRT on every aspect of daily life and the history of our country in 1619, there is no time left over to study basic civics.

“I will let you pass a civics course requirement if you let me decide what is in the course, 1619 project, and radical gender theory and an explanation of why the electoral college is evil”-Democrats

Perhaps it would be a good idea to try and define what is allowed in a civics course before trying desperately to mandate them?

    Most states have traditionally had civics education requirements,

    Florida Dept of Education – Civic Literacy
    https://www.fldoe.org/civicliteracy/

    “In order for a student to be promoted to high school from a school that includes middle grades 6, 7, and 8, the student must successfully complete a one-semester civics education course that includes the roles and responsibilities of federal, state, and local governments; the structures and functions of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government; and the meaning and significance of historic documents, such as the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States. Each student’s performance on the statewide, standardized end-of-course assessment in civics education constitutes 30 percent of the student’s final course grade.”

    “Civic literacy competencies and outcomes include:
    – An understanding of the basic principles of American democracy and how they are applied in our republican form of government.
    – An understanding of the United States Constitution.
    – Knowledge of the founding documents and how they have shaped the nature and functions of our institutions of self-governance.
    – An understanding of landmark Supreme Court cases and their impact on law and society.”

    Note: The required test for US naturalization includes no 1619 or CRT BS. Here is the civics test question bank: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/crc/128%20Civics%20Questions%20and%20Answers%20%282020%20version%29.pdf

Here in Alabama we just passed and Gov Ivey signed legislation that mirrors Fla but from K-5. Also got approved legislation that makes illegal any form of surgery, chemicals or drugs to be used to ‘transition’ minors and requires use of restrooms/showers/locker rooms to correspond to biological sex in schools.
