I watched Richard Dreyfuss on the Tucker Carlson show on Fox news and I was shocked that our children were not being taught civics in the classrooms. I believe strongly that civics is very important basics that every American citizen must learn. Richard was amazed at how many of us responded to his call to have civics taught from Kindergarten through the twelfth grade. I would go a step further and make it mandatory for graduating from high school. I was the class that was taught civics in 1972. There is no wonder why our children are so lacking in knowledge of our Constitution and the Bill of rights. They were never taught civics in school. Civics is a class that all American children need so that they can become better citizens and leaders for our country later.
I stand with Richard Drefuss and I urge all of you to sign the petition. This is NOT a liberal or a conservative thing. This is an American necessity so that our kids will know how to run our country before it is their time to do so. Please sign the Preamble so that our children can be as smart as a whip!!! You can support as well at www.thedreyfussinitiative.org I signed it and I hope that all of you do as well!
