The United States of America, the nation we all reside in, is undoubtedly a global superpower seen by many as a shining symbol of Democracy and fairness. However, as many of its citizens know, various problems continue to stain its legacy. Unfortunately, lack of knowledge on these subjects has been holding back the general public from speaking out against issues that involve the country they reside in, whether they be domestic or international.  To prevent this tradition of neglect from continuing, the educational system should create an elective that provides students with the opportunity of becoming educated on these vital issues, ranging from mental health to racial equity. Issues that resulted from the U.S.’s involvement will also be tackled, such as the Israeli and Palestinian conflict or the current state of Iraq. Students will be able to leave the classroom versed on the issues that plagues society and ready to solve them in the near future.
