Systemic changes that improve public education and increase democratic accountability can occur by transforming the way civics education is taught in our country. School is the one universal experience that can prepare entire generations to be active citizens. The return on our investments in public education should not only be measured in terms of educational attainment standards, but it should also be gauged by how well the next generation of Americans are prepared to take the reins of our democratic system and protect the values that solidify our society.
Students are a force for change, and need to know how to make their voices heard so they can have a seat at the table. We want to offer tools for school communities throughout the country to empower their students with the knowledge and skills to effectively exercise their democratic rights. Our nonpartisan civics curriculum and community organizing tools use best practices identified by CIRCLE and cited by the U.S. Department of Education.
Help us transform civics education in our country one school community at a time, and help young people amplify their voices to affect change.
Thank you in advance for your support.
