Dr. Marc Brasof, assistant professor of Education, was featured on March 15 in an Education Week article addressing the importance of a strong civics curriculum in high school classes, especially when discussing the Second Amendment. Brasof stressed the need to take current events and regional culture into consideration. Rather than providing a critical framework, most civics lessons are “Caught in the lens of ‘in the beginnings of our nation,’” Dr. Brasof wrote.
