I believe that every school should add a current events class to their curriculum, beginning in Kindergarten and lasting through Senior year. We prioritize that our children study historical literature and ancient societies, but we rarely encourage them to learn about the present. We need to show them how history too often repeats itself, not just keep repeating that sentence. We need to expand their minds to the good and the bad happening across the world. We need to teach them the importance of being involved. We need to start them out young so that being aware of current events is a habit. Too many young people are growing up in a sheltered bubble, not realizing what is happening in politics, the environment, and social societies across the world. We need to teach them to look at these events, create opinions and ideas, and make a difference. We need to change this.
