Civics in schools: a case study

Jules: "Why is the radio still talking about the apology? That was yesterday."

Mum: "They are talking about people's responses to it. The apology is a very important event for Australia. There was a long story on the BBC, which is like the ABC but in England. So even in other countries in the world, it has been news. And you got to watch it on television with your class!"

Jules: "And it was very boring."
