Councilor Garrison introduces her first hearing order

According to the Center for American Progress, only nine states and the District of Columbia require one year of U.S government or civics education, with Massachusetts not being one of them.

Councilor Garrison highlighted a statistic, saying, “Only a quarter of Americans can name all three branches of government. I propose that we open up the conversation and work with our City Hall education cabinet […] to consider changing our half year mandatory civics class requirement to at least one year, and perhaps even more than that.”

The matter was assigned to the Committee on Education for further review.
