Last Tuesday, I spoke at a break-out session at the annual conference of the Michigan Council for the Social Studies (MCSS) regarding my book, America’s Survival Guide, How to Stop America’s Impending Suicide by Reclaiming Our First Principles and History (http://www.americassurvivalguide.com/index.php). The MCSS provided complimentary copies of my book to conference attendees.
I appreciated speaking with some of the old vanguard in the fight to preserve social studies, including Roy Sovis, Amy Bloom, and J. Kelli Sweet - and meeting the new - like Kimberly Meade. My daughter Leah had a great time at the lunch and exhibit hall - and tolerated her father's comments at the break-out session.
MCSS has been on the frontlines of advocating for excellent social studies education for all of Michigan’s children. Under the able leadership of Executive Director J. Kelli Sweet, President Tom Costello, and many others, MCSS provides excellent advocacy and training for social studies educators They are simply indispensable, and epitomize the power and need of nonprofits to preserve our constitutional order.
