Educational Flashback: School House Rock

Indian_Rock_Schoolhouse,_Amenia,_NYBy Darius Wood

This Sunday, September 7th at 7 p.m. ABC will air a special where they attempt to rank and determine the best School House Rock song of all-time.

School House Rock is educational musical series that aired from 1973 to 1985 on ABC. The series covered a variety of topics including science, history, grammar, economics, and mathematics. Some of these songs may be particularly helpful and provide you with a creative refresher on some topics that you haven’t dealt with in years. Many of my teachers’ used these cartoons to introduce topics and help teach us things like The Preamble of the Constitution and how a bill becomes a law. So, take a break this Sunday and enjoy!
