Teaching the Right Kind of Civics

The Edjurist:

So, I can't help but think there is an element of lipservice in O'Conner's civics education push. Yes we should teach our students about our democracy, but we have to realize that we are constantly teaching our students about our democracy every day they attend for 15-20 years. Justice O'Conner, in fact, has already taught our nation's students a lesson in civics ... and I have to say her lessons have been pretty harsh.
