I remember back to one of my favorite classes in college, “American Government.” It was a weekly class that met on Wednesday nights for three hours at a time. My political science professor would use the first 15-30 minutes of each class to have a discussion about current events. We were free to discuss all the issues: abortion, religion, war, freedom of the press, etc. The professor would keep the discussion moving by asking questions. He always remained neutral. I never did figure out which way he leaned politically, which I admire about him to this day.
This is a pretty good time for students of all ages to be studying American Government – let’s hope that government teachers/professors take some time to teach about current government events happening in Montana and in Washington, D.C.
It’s also a good time to be a lawyer – especially if you specialize in constitutional law.
