So in addition to my talkings, I think an alternative to these things would be courses on state and federal laws and regulations, plus furthur knowledge on how the government works. We have basic civics when I went to school, but I think more should have been explored than just a rehashing of "the three basic branches" and "checks and balances". Put some real world events and ideas in it, and in my opinion, it will be more pertinent than tons of history classes.
How about your thoughts? Do you agree with the system now? Disagree with my ideas? Do you have a better idea that would work? Think about it and comment below!
