The Death of Social Studies–by Todd Stanley

Ballot Box Horizonal

We have only ourselves to blame for the death of Social Studies.

by Todd Stanley

 

Today in the state of Ohio, Social Studies met its untimely death. The cause of death is disinterest in the subject area as evidenced by the elimination of state tests in 4th and 6th grades. This acts as the nail in the coffin, as many other states had already given up on the subject area. At the time of its death, Social Studies was working on making students care about government, showing them how to be good citizens and community members, and teaching about the past so as not to repeat similar mistakes in the future.
