Well, here are three outlets for boys and girls alike where substance rather than infamy through idiocy is priority:
Brought to you by none other than former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, iCivics.org teaches A. No. 1 the definition of CIVICS. The web based education project is “designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy.”
Like the extinction of arts and physical education, there is overwhelmingly no financial planning taught in primary school – thus we are all primed and ready to fall into debt and economic despair fresh out of the uncultured, unhealthy gates. BizKid$.com aims to teach while lending a clue to both youth and adults about how and why to take care of personal economics.
The smart hilariousness of Amy Poehler sweeps the web in her series Smart Girls at the Party where they, “celebrate extraordinary individuals who are changing the world by being themselves.” The humor fueled web series gets eye to eye with young women using their voice to encourage and inspire each other to be confident in being a smart girl!
