Here are some remarks I made on civics education on the Assembly Floor on September 28, 2021 part one. Here I express my opinions that civics education is something we need to strive for, and do better to implement.
Being a history teacher, I worry about how we treat each other and what’s to come in our future. We must create a course where we can teach children about civil discourse, and as Representatives we must be leading examples to these students.
Here is part 2 where I make more remarks about civics education on the Assembly floor on September 28, 2021. I discuss that they key to civics education is to first have a background of social studies disciplines such as history, law, economics.
Secondly, we must ensure our students are aware of current events. We must tie civics education curriculum to events that are happening in student’s communities.
