Description

WESTERN STATES CIVICS COALITION - The State of Civics Education (the first in a series)

February 23, 3:30 - to 5:00 p.m. PT

Western States Civics Coalition (WSCC)

Register for the next WSCC session on the current state of (and bipartisan support for) civic education on February 23.  Can't attend? Register to receive a link to the recorded seminar after the event! This is a free, online, professional development event for civics teachers and is open to all.

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 desire to see more and better civic education; why civic education is important; and delve into effective classroom practices. Join us on February 23, 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. PT for the initial foundation setting session on the current state of civics in schools and trending support for civics programs.
