In Poland, the Minister of Education is planning to introduce to schools special lessons of "Patriotic education".
Do you think that USA should do that as well?
Not Patriotism Education. but Civics.
Civics is probably the most important class a kid can take. Except it sounds so freaking boring.
Very good point. I actually run a pseudo-class/activities group for young teenagers in Civics over the summer. I'm afraid its lost on a lot of them but a few of them every year show promise. It's worth it for those few. Okay, the paychecks are nice too.
I think it's either one way or the other. Lack of a nationalistic education evolves into anti-nationalistic education like we see so much in America today.
Thats absoloute ****. Let kids make up their own mind wether they love their country or not. Telling kids to love it isn't fair, letting them look at the country from a more neutral perspective at first can let them make a fair choice.
You should teach kids if they don't like their country, to change it for the good of the people.
