Support for Civics Education and Rekindling our Civic Culture
Recorded February 23
Recent polling suggests that support for civic education is strong, and bipartisan. A clear majority of voters across the political spectrum are in favor of increasing focus on civics in the classroom. In a new, free, online web series, the Western States Civics Coalition will explore this majority desire to see more and better civic education, why civic education is important, and delve into effective classroom practices.
