Voters suppression has been a practice of steady and constant knee on the necks of people of color and Civic Education is the #1 Voter Suppression tactic of all time. Here is a good read, The State of Civics Education by Sarah Shapiro and Catherine Brown, https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education-k-12/reports/2018/02/21/446857/state-civics-education/. Shapiro and Brown state “some schools only require one course in Civics while some schools offer a wide curricula of Civics.” Few states provide service-learning opportunities or engage students in relevant project-based learning. In addition, few students are sufficiently prepared to pass the AP U.S. government exam.

Voting is a Rites of Passage 18 year olds should look forward to, but if you are not taught, typically you do not vote. We The People can correct this wrong b demanding higher standards and a more vigorous Civics Education curriculum in all schools not just some. https://twitter.com/SherylB53564074.
Civics Education is a Right and vigorous instruction must be included in all public school curricula if we are to educate, inform and train our youth to lead. #BOSSUPAMERICA.
And that is clearly Voter Suppression, so once again the elected/ hires put this in place to deprive people from voting and of course it is people of color because some schools do teach a vigorous curricula of Civics Education. Here is a good read with stats, measures and key factors, https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education-k-12/reports/2018/02/21/446857/state-civics-education/, The State of Civics Education by Sarah Shapiro and Catherine Brown, go on to state “While this research highlights that no state currently provides sufficient and comprehensive civic education, there is reason to be optimistic that high-quality civics education can impact civic behavior.” and “Teaching Tolerance also funds school-level, classroom-level, and district-level projects that engage in youth development and encourage civics in action. Shapiro and Brown also stated “Few states provide service-learning opportunities or engage students in relevant project-based learning. In addition, few students are sufficiently prepared to pass the AP U.S. government exam.”
Voting is a Rites of Passage, all 18 year olds should look forward to this citizen action, but if schools do not teach it then they do not.
Typically I am not a big Rap fan but I understood everything that DJ Yellow, said… We must vote every election and vote the entire ballot, It all matters.
