Ensure that every student in the United States receives an effective Action Civics education, which provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in our democracy as active citizens.
It is a foundational responsibility of our public schools to prepare students for citizenship. Yet there has been a decline in the prevalence and quality of civics education over the past decades, and a correlating decline in civic participation.
SCHOOL DISTRICT LEADERS are in a unique position to shift the tide of civics education to drive towards this goal.
Shape district priorities. Support teachers. Advocate for robust civics education policy.
