How do teachers fit civics back into the curriculum?

Do you believe in a renewed focus on civics in public schools?
In April, 2021, WJCC Schools Social Studies Coordinator, Steve Legawiec, shared with us the latest initiatives on teaching civics in our local schools. The 2020 elections were a major civics lesson for a lot of folks who do not follow politics carefully. As civic education declines, civil discourse declines.

Yet, 5 cents per student is spent on civic education in the U.S. while $50/student is devoted to STEM (Science, Technology. Engineering, Math) instruction.
