As far as social studies and US history goes, we started learning about that in 6th grade (middle school) or even earlier. More serious government stuff and political studies are mainly taught from 10th grade on. And yes in 12 grade (final grade) some or most schools will offer advanced courses to students who are planning a career in it. Or besides the regular classes, we had student clubs that were broken down into future occupation groups that would meet twice a week and bring in guest specialists for like an hour per session to talk to that group (club) about their specific field of interest. Politics, Gov, Teaching, or whatever the field may be. Hope this helps. But then, if you ask ten different ppl this question, you may ge ten different answers depending on the schools curiculum.
