I have been beating my gums endlessly about the lack of proper Civics instruction in our school….it seems someone has stepped up to try and repair our ignorance around civics…the Lincoln Project…..
Chasing after your fellow officials screaming at them, staging protests that gum up Congress, and attacks on the U.S. Capitol aren’t normal, but for some young people, it’s all they’ve ever witnessed from their government, Axios reported.
It’s one of the reasons that the GOP-expat group The Lincoln Project is starting a civics education program they’ll call The Franklin Project. They’ll also start doing grassroots organizing around those who are fed-up with “partisan dysfunction and authoritarianism.” It will become their Democracy Corps, a “hyper-local movement spread across the nation ‘that will advocate for and amplify the values upon which America was founded,'” said Axios, quoting the prospectus.
The move comes amid a group of over 100 Republicans threatening to leave the GOP amid Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) expulsion from the House leadership.
“We’re not the megaphone; we’re the convener,” co-executive director Greg Jenkins told Axios.
I applaud this attempt….I just hope that it is a good and concise program on Civics and does not sink to partisan BS.
Should we trust Republicans to do the right thing with the proposed program?
This country needs a vaccine to help them get into the Civics of this country…..if we want a progress past the manure of 2020 then we need this program.
