Everyone's view will be recognized while appreciating diversity of thought. Local legislators and an administration of justice instructor will appear as guest speakers. The course is pending Act 48 approval. Educators are encouraged to enroll.

Other topics to be covered include the Constitution, checks and balances, the electoral college, branches of government, what can be expected in this year's election, and more.
