Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Huntington Station District Curriculum
High school students take part in a government curriculum that teaches them about the philosophical foundations of government as well as the rights and responsibilities inherent in being a citizen of a democracy. Students identify the purposes of government by analyzing early documents that provided the foundation for our government. This includes an examination of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Various amendments are examined, including those that protect the rights of individuals accused of a crime, such as the right to remain silent and the right to a speedy trial.
The roles of citizens are explored as well. Students learn about the necessity of citizens’ participation in government, both to inform those in elected positions as to the needs and wants of the people, but also to put those officials in place by participating in the electoral process. In this regard, students learn the value of having each community member contribute to the operation of their society. The process by which someone becomes a citizen is also outlined, particularly with regard to naturalized citizens that immigrate to the United States.

Chalk Talk: Music Studies Help Boost Achievement
Studies show that students who are involved in the study of music demonstrate improved academic achievement in core subject areas like math and language arts. Whether they study instrumental or vocal music, students in music programs achieve higher scores on standardized tests of math and reading abilities, and also demonstrate an improved commitment to their classroom learning and homework. Additionally, students who participate in music have an increased understanding of the world in which they live, as well as an improved appreciation for other societies and cultures. Research shows that students who take music classes make better decisions as well. In fact, students enrolled in music courses are less likely to engage in risky behaviors, such as those involving drugs. Since many colleges view music as an essential component of K-12 learning, taking music courses can benefit students as they apply for admittance to colleges as well.
