Over the course of this year I have been working on a research paper about civics education. This topic is especially important to me because I hope to have a career in politics in the future.
While some lobbyists believe that civics education is not important, most experts believe teaching civics in school increases critical thinking, and makes students better citizens. These could be increased through the use of laws passed.
Plan of Action
In my research paper, I bring forth a plan to expand civics education. This plan includes having schools create programs that get students involved in local government. This means that in these new civics classes students would volunteer at local election and attempt to lobby for things that they want. This includes making petitions, and formulating logical arguments.
