Extra: The Case For Mandatory Civics Lessons

A recent FOX News poll suggests Americans are less proud of being American and losing confidence in its institutions.

A majority don’t have confidence in our federal government, the Supreme Court, and even the FBI.

Many blame this trend on the nation’s increasing political polarization and the rhetoric used by lawmakers that fuel it.

Richard Haas, senior counselor at Center View Partners and president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, recently joined host Jessica Rosenthal on the FOX News Rundown to discuss this trend.

Haass explained why he thinks the country is growing more divided and why he feels teaching history and making civics classes mandatory can help us unite.

He also discussed his book, The Bill of Obligations, which explains how Americans can become better citizens and strengthen our country.

The conversation was long, and we could not include all of it in our original FOX News Rundown segment.

On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversation with Richard Haass and hear more of his take on America’s growing polarization. Plus, he weighs in on the Presidential race and why he feels President Biden should step aside following his recent debate performance.
