Transcript of The United States Government and The Roman Republic

The Roman Republic and the
United States of America By: Anna Broadway The Role of the Senate The Senate in the Roman Republic In the Roman Republic, the Senate was mainly used to create laws. The Senate was the most important group of government leaders, and was made up of 300 patricians. All members must serve as a part of the Senate for their entire life. Another very important job they had was to select a Dictator. The United States Senate In the United States Senate, they help create laws along with the House of Representatives. The Senators are divided into "classes" based on their term. Present day classes are: Class I terms expire in 2013, Class II in 2015, and Class III in 2017. Each term is for 6 years and Senators can be re-elected for unlimited terms. There are 100 Senators in the US Senate, 2 from each of the 50 states. Education of Youth Education in the Roman Republic In the Roman Republic, all children both boys and girls were educated. This meant they were taught to read and write no matter if they were Patricians or Plebeians. After the Republic had been formed for a while, wealthy Patricians hired personal tutors, usually Greeks, to watch or supervise the education of their youth. These tutors would teach children important events of Roman history. Education in the United States In the United States, children are also offered public education no matter what gender, race, ethnicity or religion. By law children under the age of 16 must attend school but can remain in school until age 18 to earn a high school diploma. Like in Ancient Rome, the wealthier class of people are able to afford private schools and more elite colleges and universities. Bibliography
