There was a time when current events classes were almost a routine course for high school students. In talking to some of these students today, they said they have never attended a current events class, or even heard of such a course.

Years ago, current events classes included reading a daily newspaper to keep current on everyday happenings in our country. The news items were discussed, and that led to mild debates on the issues involved. The classes ignited high interest and when it came to government stories, it also was a lesson in American history and civics. During the war years, the classes were very educational in keeping up with the progress of our troops and what was going on in the domestic front.
