Advancing civic learning

Opportunity to voice your thoughts. . .

From the US Department of Education :

At a White House event this past January, the Obama Administration released its Road Map for civic learning, “Advancing Civic Learning and Engagement in Democracy.”  The Road Map outlines nine steps ED is undertaking to increase civic learning and engagement across our country.

The Civic Learning and Engagement Initiative is requesting feedback from you on how ED should implement 4 of the 9 steps and define “civic learning and engagement”. We encourage educators, practitioners, students, researchers, and any other interested parties to submit thoughtful opinions, ideas, suggestions and comments. Please submit all comments by November 30th to or post them on directly on the blog.

We envision a nationwide commitment to preparing all students for citizenship as informed, engaged and responsible members of our society.
