More US History !

I still recall the morning of November 9, 2016, I had to explain the electoral college to my teenager who is in advanced classes. And it is not her fault. She will not have a formal American History/Civics class until 8th grade. To me, this is tragic.While I think it is valuable to learn about other countries, I think kids first need a foundation of our history and an understanding of our system of government. I hope that if any positive comes out of this election it is that we can have civil discourse about what we are teaching our kids
