Marjory Stoneman Douglas Politics And Government Teacher Writes About Why Government Matters

Oct 23, 2020

Jeff Foster is an Advanced Placement Government and Politics teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. His motto to his students has always been: “You can’t complain about government if you don’t participate.”

After the tragedy that occurred at his school in February 2018, many students credited “Mr. Foster” with giving them the tools that inspired the Never Again movement and spawned the March for Our Lives. Jeff continues to motivate and inspire his students to become active participants in government. He believes that one person can make a difference, no matter their age. 

His new book is "For Which We Stand: How Our Government Works and Why It Matters."
