Getting through the depression stage is tough.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 2/18/2014   Teaching seniors in high school is interesting. As they ready to leave the despotic institution that raised them, I see many quarter-life crises erupt, especially second semester of senior year. Standing in front of the world of possibilities before them, many succumb to Stockholm syndrome, acting out in bizarre [...]

All Politics is Local

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 11/18/2013 Last week, Richardson High School students overwhelmingly rejected a district approved guest speaker, the “bestselling author” of Christian inspired books on dating, Justin Lookadoo. Lookadoo caused an uproar among students which has now gained international attention. As a Richardson district AP Government and Macroeconomics teacher in Berkner High School’s STEM [...]

Debt, Denial, and Disgust

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 10/20/2013 Many of us living in the two political party paradigm smiled as they read last week’s debt ceiling headlines: A bipartisan deal had been reached and furloughed federal workers may return to work. Federal parks are open and White House tours will resume. Victory came in the 11th hour inspiring [...]

Call me crazy, but I think everyone in Washington DC has gone insane.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 9/8/2013 It is becoming increasingly difficult to teach the various political ideologies to my new group of students. Liberals have been acting like conservatives, and conservatives have been acting like liberals. There are just too many lies and it’s all so confusing to the neophyte political observer. Even Matt Drudge acknowledges [...]

Madam Feinstein, I’m slightly concerned for your mental health.

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/18/2013 Dear Dianne Feinstein, Recently, a former AP Economics teacher wrote a letter to the massive state surveillance system and since I know you introduced the last internet censorship bill, PIPA, voted to extend the Patriot Act, and introduced legislation to ban semi-automatic rifles or “assault weapons” as you masters of [...]

Why did the Republican Governors Association give $58,000 to “Illuminati Research”?

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/8/2013   I am trying to get back into the swing of the upcoming school year. Increasingly, my time is shifting from house remodeling projects to preparing to teach AP Government and Politics and AP Macroeocnomics. So I find myself  looking at old material, revamping projects, looking at calendars- typical teacher [...]

UPDATE: Sheeple on Vaccines: A Facebook Moment

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 8/2/2013 Ugh, I just noticed that we have breached into August which means school will be starting soon. Now is about the time that I need to devote some serious mental energy into thinking about the school year and what I need to add or change to ensure a smooth start.  [...]

The Fed blows….bubbles

By Brittany Yurkovitch on 5/18/2013 Yes, I gave my students bubbles and wrote the following on the container: “The Fed blows bubbles”,”C + I+G+Xn = GDP” and underlined the “Made in China” letting kids know this purchase added to the trade deficit) For high achieving high school students across the nation, this has been an [...]

Don’t Worry, Be Hempy

By Brittany Yurkovitch on April 7, 2013 It’s official. Over 50% of Americans are ready for marijuana prohibition to end. This is fabulous news and freedom lovers alike should celebrate. Alcohol prohibition ended when it became to expensive and unpopular to enforce during the Great Depression. Our drug laws will probably experience the same fate [...]

Awakening to the true value of silver

By Brittany Yurkovitch on February 3, 2013 Happy Bread and Circus weekend, I mean Superbowl weekend. These are exciting times to teach government and economics. This semester, I am teaching a combination of economics, AP Macroeconomics, and US History- so I am busy, to say the least. The US History course was added to my [...]
