H14110: U.S. State & Local Government in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Our state and local governments play a key role in governing American society, even though they are commonly left out of political discussion. These “lower” levels of government can actually be extremely powerful given that every power not held by the federal government is left to be divided by the states and the people. In this course, students will learn about everything from the importance of a local school board, to the powers of a governor, and even how you might get involved with the level of government closest to you.
