Perspective | What civics education should really look like

A new report from the National Academy of Education states that enhanced civics and history classes won’t be enough to prepare young people to engage in national conversations about complex social issues. Rather, the report argues that civics learning must be distributed across all the content areas that extend from kindergarten to high school graduation. Read more from Washington Post ⬇️

Longtime GOP Sen. John Warner Of Virginia Dies At 94

“John’s life is proof that individual persons make a difference for our country, if they have the will to try … Our Founders would regard the Senate career of John Warner as a shining example of the type of person they envisioned should serve in this body of our government.” – Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Peace to Senator John Warner. Senator Kennedy and Senator Warner served together on the Senate Armed Services Committee for 30 years & described each other as good friends. Warner's longtime service established him as a centerpiece of American politics.

Warner served for 30 years in the Senate and established himself at the center of American politics. The Republican initially became famous when he married actress Elizabeth Taylor.

Remembering John F. Kennedy, my text from 2017...
VOICE OF A COMMON GOODER CONVERTING ALL TO ELECTRICAL POWER HAS VULNERABILITIES! Converting all to electrical power including automobiles in the years ahead, MUST TAKE SERIOUS THOUGHT! Right now, when there are major wide power failures with everything now practically done by computerization, -CIVILIZATION ESSENTIALLY STOPS! You can’t now even operate a cash register or pump gas when electrical power is out. -Never mind lights, furnaces, or air conditioners! So, we MUST HAVE ALL SORTS OF emergency electrical power generator systems to maintain some sort of power to minimal run the essentials needed for human basic survival, when especially most everything in the future will depend solely on electrical power to operate. And to deal with the worst-case scenario where no other electrical power source is available in a remote area, or things are so bad even in a densely populated area that repairs to electrical infrastructure systems will take days and even weeks to restore. [Just witness what happened in Texas.] We MUST HAVE THE option and availability of “low tech” means of generating electrical emergency power. I.E. We must have the availability of MANUEL HAND CRANKED or FOOT PEDAL powered means portable emergency electrical power source generators. We MUST ADVOCATE for the design and construction of such “low tech” means of generating electrical power NOW BEFORE this country converts to all electric power run. Because the technical wonks will NOT likely think about never mind will ACCEPT such means of generating power. -Because of having a blind spot of over optimism and faith in regards to things working that are according to highly technical means. Sometimes they in ignoring common sense and denying how the forces of nature can decimate a society’s energy power source infrastructure. SO SAY WE ALL! (April 23, 2021)
Dear Institute Members: I would like to see the electorate of this country become much better educated than they are at present. They should know their American Civics well, just as every immigrant does. I feel education is a key to eliminating white supremacy and racism in this country. Concomitant with this, I would like to see the U.S. draft / selective service system re-instituted. When citizens of all stripes and origins can work together on behalf of the country for 18 months to 2 years, as I did when drafted, they will come to a much better understanding of themselves and their fellow citizens, thus helping to eliminate racism, sexism, corporate greed, so many of the ills presently manifesting nationally. I say this as a former recon soldier in Vietnam, and a Peace advocate whose lessons were learned in a war I did not believe in, and which had riven our country as badly as the last president did in only 4 years. Education and a cultivation of genuine spirituality, seeing the infinite in oneself and in others, can lead us a long way towards healing this troubled country.
Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the US Senate hands out an "award" to the two clowns whose covid "response" has killed more people (per capita) than ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD. Sad day for America, and for the memory of the late Senator Kennedy indeed.
Question about Senate history: who was the last serving Senator who began his career before the 17th Amendment was enacted?
VOICE OF A COMMON GOODER MICROSOFT SHOULD DELAY DOWNLOADING ANY “LONG-UPDATES” TO USERS COMPUTERS AT THIS TIME! At this-time when people are dependent the most on their personal computers for social connecting with others and having any contact with the outside world. And especially in-regards to those who are disabled and elderly who live all alone. This IS NOT THE TIME, for Microsoft to download “long-updates” on user’s computers that may take MORE THEN ONE DAY TO DOWN- LOAD COMPLETE. That will cut off people’s access to the internet FOR POSSIBLY SEVERAL DAYS! Microsoft should delay downloading any “long-updates” to user’s computers at least until May or later! CONTACT MICROSOFT. They have a help section for people with disability, and you can request they move the date of install to May. Which as a Veteran with PTSD, and alone in my house since my mother died of cancer last year, I requested and was granted a delay of install until May 9th. SO SAY WE ALL! (April 5, 2020)
