It’s not new news that most U.S.-born American citizens who’ve been through and even graduated from our educational institutions could not pass the Naturalization Test with anything close to barely-passing scores on the first try – so is this story any surprise?

Teaching Students That Judge Judy Is Not a Supreme Court Justice, by Elizabeth A. Harris, New York Times, Nov. 9, 2016

We all aim to do a better job learning about our country’s and the world’s history and laws and maybe also support, volunteer for, or participate in Oregon’s Classroom Law Project and others like it around the country. Maybe the next generations will do better – at least we can hope they will try.

Oregon’s Classroom Law Project (CLP) Multnomah County Courthouse Experience tour guide volunteer program is fun and educational and perfect for non-attorneys.
Orientation for the upcoming Courthouse Experience tour guide season will be held on Friday, September 9, 2011, at Noon.  Sign up to meet other volunteers and CLP staff.
I volunteered last year and will sign up for another round.  I met excellent co-volunteers, CLP staff members, lawyers, judges, and judicial staff all of whom cheerfully welcomed the CLP tour guides and the students who participated in the court tour program.

Constitution Day 2010 has passed with nary a whimper, but thoughts of the inimitable Classroom Law Project stay front and center.

Did you know you can volunteer with the Classroom Law Project? They are super-friendly, fun, and oh so smart. And they are willing to pass all that goodness on to you, free of charge. You just need to volunteer. (I’m volunteering so I can learn how to bring all that goodness out to my law library’s county.)

Learn and teach about civics, courts, and law making. You don’t need to be a lawyer to volunteer – really!
