Politics of the Day

The desire to politick is influnced early, and socioeconomics makes a big difference. "Duh" you might say, but as an adult you have a responsibility.

�One could say that poorer schools are likely to create apathetic citizens,� Starmanns reasons. Political apathy is one of the social-cognitive �loops� identified by psychology professor Albert Bandura in his book Self- Efficacy: The Exercise of Control (1997). Simply put, powerlessness discourages participation, and failure to participate ensures lack of impact. But if educators effectively engage students in school government, students should come to see themselves as people who can make a difference.
