February 26, 2007 How Much Do You Know About Government?
We began the Legislative session showing this video at Local Officials’ Day…so I thought maybe it is appropriate to the show the video again with the session ending this Wednesday. You can read the Deseret News article regarding this video here.
Whats the point? The point is we can all become more educated on civics and government. It is easy to be disengaged when we don’t understand the process or the players…think about watching a sporting event without knowledge of any of the rules. We think local government can play a part in addressing this civics ignorance. Which is why we recently published a curriculum guide for 4th and 7th grade teachers. Read more about it here. Or if you are in South Jordan City you may want to consider South Jordan University.
