Bring Civics and Social Studies Back to the Classrooms of America!

The recent midterm election results of 2018 left most Americans wondering,"How are the wheels of government impacted by a Democratic House majority, a Republican President and a Republican Senate majority?"  Just whom is "checking and balancing" whom?
While we cannot even begin to answer that question, we can give a shout out to all of the elementary schools and resources around the country that refuse to expunge Civics and Social Studies instruction from their curriculum and instruction. Thank you for keeping it real!  For those of us who need a Civics refresher, check out these resources:
