A new article on Education Week details how some scholars are saying that teaching civics is equally important as math or literacy. They say that schools needs to realign priorities and bring civics back to the classroom.
Civics, which teaches not only civic responsibility but also how to read and interpret the news and other important skills to be an active citizen with a voice, used to be a main stay in American schools. But public education has seemingly moved away from this.
What do you think? Is teaching civics one of those must-learn subjects for students?
