Students should learn about our government

Students should learn about our government

  • 0

The proper high school education is just one step in the right direction for America. The education young adults acquire in high school puts them on the right path to further both themselves and the economy.

Government classes vary in different schools. Some high schools require students to take a government class, whereas some schools make it optional.

High school students are young adults that will soon have an affect on our government and economy. They deserve to be fully taught, informed and involved in our government. They do not only deserve the knowledge; they also need the knowledge.

When our young adults are uneducated on aspects pertaining to our government, it leads to uneducated votes. When we start expecting less and less of our young adults and the knowledge they are capable of, we are not only weakening ourselves, but also our government and economy. The time to start expecting more of our young adults is now.
