Until recent decades, I only ever enjoyed government/politics in the context of history, and only then because I love to read. I made decent grades in government classes, aced my constitution tests, but never found politics overly interesting (or understandable) until well into my twenties.

Thank goodness for the years of Shoolhouse Rock singing to me on PBS (and in my memory) or I might not have grasp any of it at all.

Great watch for kids but I can think of a few adults that might sharpen their skills on this subject as well.
