1. I'm thinking that's not even a required class, anymore.

Which is really, really wrong.

3. In Virginia, civics is required in middle and high school, and is in the

Virginia Standards of Learning tests required of all students.

5. Great move by the Speaker. Getting widespread coverage, even fox was

going live on the proceedings.

My understanding of the situation, was Pelosi thought the 'cons were getting away with the 'secret hearings' [dispite the obvious lies], so she turned the table and grabbed the media's attention, - without giving up hardly anything.

If civics teachers mention this, so much the better.

7. If I were teaching civics, I would teach these impeachment episodes as fights.

Get students attention.
