Skyler Goldberg started this petition to Miller Place High School Administration

Our country has descended into an abyss of partisanship, in which everyone refuses to listen to what those who disagree with them say. Democrats and Republicans are screaming treason, blaming the other party, attacking previously unattackable political norms, disregarding civility, denying facts. At the same time — a time when citizens need well-researched, unbiased reporting most desperately — both liberal and conservative media have turned to editorializing and sensationalism. 

To navigate these pressing issues, students — who will soon be voting — need a civic education more than ever. Citizens must know how our government operates, must know the foundations of our Constitution, must know to think critically about the news, must know about landmark cases in our country’s history. Unfortunately, Miller Place High School does not yet offer the course(s) needed to produce such citizens. AP United States Government and  Politics offers the curriculum to prepare our students for our uncharted political climate.
