The Oregon Council for the social studies
Please join our colleagues at Classroom Law Project in supporting The Civics Education Act, a bill before the Oregon Legislature (HB2299/SB513) that will ensure that every Oregon high school student will receive one semester of civics education.
We understand the importance of helping students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to realize their potential as successful and productive members of our society. Education in Oregon must empower students to be well-informed, active members of their communities, and provide a meaningful opportunity to participate in our democracy to make positive changes in the world around us. We are not yet effectively providing those tools and we need your support.
