Serious? World Government or Civics classes? Man here in OK they are MANDATORY you don’t pass them you don’t graduate. Even when ds was in college he had to take those classes for his Music Education and/or Composition degree.Our Civics class in high school was so ill behaved we went through three teachers in the first 9 weeks of school the fourth teacher they brought in was a cop (later to become the city/county DA) and the very first day he started out by introducing himself and saying he understood our class had a discipline problem. He then pulled out his service revolver and laid it on his desk and quietly said—“It ends now.” Not only did the class straighten up one of the kids went on to be a DA himself. –one of the biggest troublemakers in the class. LOL!
