I happened to see this interview online, and thought it was worth sharing.  Richard Dreyfuss is interviewed by Roger L. Simon.  Dreyfuss and Simon worked on a movie together years ago.  The movie was The Big Fix, starring Dreyfuss as Moses Wine, who was the main character of a novel written by Simon.  Simon also wrote the screenplay.

Dreyfuss talks about the importance of teaching Civics in schools in this interview:
