I am a retired Professor (Criminal Justice) and High School teacher.  I am also a practicing attorney in New York State.  I taught Advanced Placement US Government, Advanced Placement Comparative Government and traditional High School Government for over ten years.  I know it is important to introduce a fact based, non biased lesson to students that will foster discussions with their family.
