Youth Civic Engagement in Classrooms
Posted December 10, 2013
The Stanford Daily recently posted an article on a consensus report titled "Youth Civic Development & Education." The report discusses the need for more civic engagement in the classrooms to prepare students for effective participation in civic life, and what that would look like.
"Students are not finding inspiration in civic values as taught in schools today, nor are they gaining a sense that they are able to engage effectively in civic and political domains...
