the classs should be electives, and seperate from a mandatory class.
These classes will always be somewhat biased
it shouldnt but it does
this might be erevilant but some people are saying if there is such a class teachers personal issues might get in the way.as a teacher there personal life should not effect their class
they should because when they are older they are most likely picks side & when they do they deserve to know what they are rooting for.
there is such a class, its called government. and the teacher has the right to add any additional information they want about it after the basics.
I think it would be difficult for a teacher to properly represent both parties, because of personal bias.
That is one of the problems with the two party system one party wants to take away the rights of this group of people and the other party wants to take away rights of the other group of people. That is exactly what our country was set up not to be
They stand for the party not the people
In my experience, and in talking to people about their experiences, current civics classes are whollely incompetant to teach politics meaningfully to highschoolers. There should be two years of full-semester political history class with optional contemporary politic classes in 11 and 12. Hell, new elected officials should take political classes too!
It is already learnt in Law Faculty at a college, isn’t it? I do support the statement fully that there should be classes in schools to discuss about political parties including the benefit and the work system itself. It is a good idea to create classes about political parties. The graduates will easily understand how the system works and minimize of controlling conflict in the state.
This already exists - Civics class is all about branches of government, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, political parties and cases which changed history such as Roe vs Wade and Rosa Parks.
