Do American students know enough about their civic rights and responsibilities? How can schools ramp up their civics instruction at a time when the American public is politically polarized and deeply distrustful of its own civic institutions? Join us for a live event that will explore current tensions in teaching students about civics and hash out ideas and recommendations for helping educators overcome them.
At this free half-day event at the Humphrey School in Minneapolis, educators and administrators, led by an expert facilitator, will get a chance to deliberate key tensions in the field of civics education and hear from reporters and others who’ve been following civics teaching in Minnesota and across the country. The conference kicks off a series of meetings across the country that are designed to yield recommendations for educators nationwide. Come and make your voice heard.
