Having a government class is required for accreditation by the various regional accrediting organizations.

When I was 9th grade we had civics and PA History. PA History was 9 weeks. When I was a senior (72-73) we had Problems of Democracy (POD). I don't remember learning much because I had an alcoholic athletic director for the class who would dictate notes for 10 minutes and go back to the athletic office.
