"By teaching students about events and people from the past, they have a better understanding of how different societies came to be, and a deeper understanding our culture in the present and the past. Social studies also will help students develop their values and think more critically about our world."
"I believe that social studies teach a great deal of insight on diversity. When students have their minds broadened by societies and cultures outside of their own, it truly is life changing."
"Social studies is one of the pillars of knowledge that each student should come to embrace. It's the study of human society, and not many topics are more important than that."
