Cause and Effect?

I am a child of the late sixties, early seventies. Included in the school curriculum, then, was a course known as “civics.” The course was supposed to inform the students about government. It covered not only government’s responsibilities to the public, but also the public’s responsibility, to make government work.

I understand that civics fell out of favor in the eighties and was removed from most school curricular. This lack has given rise to new instruction priorities.

Lori Loughlin

According to Radar Online, Lori Loughlin has hired a “prison consultant.” The consultant will teach her prison lingo and prison culture.

A source reporting to Radar Online today states that Lori is working hard to prepare herself for the reality of life behind bars – even hiring an expert.

“Besides the physical training she’s getting lots of advice from prison professors on how to earn one’s keep behind bars. It’s a sure sign she knows deep down she’s facing an inevitable stretch and will need to be prepared,” the Radar Online source added.

In the spirit of cooperation, I would recommend that she consult some of Hollywood’s depictions of prison life. She may as well get maximum use of that home theater now. Where she is going doesn’t have one.

Training Film

Who would have thought, that discontinuing civics classes, that is preparing students to be good citizens, would have such an effect? Civics has been replaced by prison prep courses. That is, teaching students how to be good felons?

It’s tough being a trend setter
