Bedell Firm Director, Hank Coxe, discusses nonpartisanship in his Florida Times-Union column titled, “New civics courses should include lessons on nonpartisanship”, published on the front page of Sunday’s REASON section.
Coxe has served as President of The Florida Bar and the Jacksonville Bar Association and has recently served on the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission and the Florida Supreme Court Innocence Commission. He has been recognized with the highest awards of the Criminal Law Section of The Florida Bar, the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The Florida Bar Foundation, and Jacksonville Area Legal Aid.
In his article, Hank condemns efforts to politicize the education system. He urges that schools require, within the civics curriculum, a focus on the power of nonpartisanship, the ways in which it has made this nation strong, and remain committed to the value of independent thought.
