Our Courts

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra O'Connor has started a new web-site. It is called Our Courts. With the web-site she hopes to fill a gap in our education system. All too often students are only taught what is needed to be able to pass the benchmarks for programs like No Child Left Behind. When Justice O'Connor was The Daily Show March 3, 2009, she stated that in half of the states, civics and American history has been dropped from the curriculum. That is a shame to our country.

What do you expect? I've met Enlglish grads from MSU who didn't have to take Shakespeare.
