Crew members were given the opportunity to participate in FPE’s online
course, Mother, Should I Trust the Government? This course was recommended for
students ages 13 and up (approximately
grades 8-12.) Families received a physical
copy of Mother, Should I Trust the Government? by Jake Jacobs, PhD, and access to
an 8-week online lecture series presented
by the author.
Mother, Should I Trust the Government?
explores the history of the American gov-
ernment. Dr. Jacobs challenges students
to consider the establishment of our na-
tion through our Founding Fathers’ world
views, and how understanding their per-
spective and intent is crucial for interpret-
ing the Declaration of Independence, the
Constitution and Articles of Confedera-
tion, and further Constitutional Amend-
ments. He also prepares students to be
active citizens, stating, “Unlike anarchists,
America’s Founders realistically concluded
that since men were not angels, govern-
ment comprised of men must be: LIMIT-
ED, checked, balanced, separated; a federal
republic and watched like a hawk forever.”
