In this month's ABA Journal, there is an article titled, "Flunking Civics: Why America's Kids know so little."
I found this to be interesting timing, considering that Honorable Wallace B. Jefferson of the Texas Supreme Court spoke at my law school graduation on May 13th about this very subject. I found his remarks regarding the need to educate the youth and laypeople to be riveting. This is a topic I often discuss amongst my friends and family, and a topic that requires attention.
**Please note that this blog will undergo some revamping, and I am considering starting a new blog to cover a more general discussion of law.
