Stepping up for civics.
For states with favorable civic education policies, a grant might provide teacher training and other support to implement them. States with little policy infrastructure may work to address that shortage. Smaller projects might include district surveys of civic education resources or plans to increase service learning with a civic focus.
The campaign is managed by the Council's Center for Democracy & Citizenship. Besides the grant program, efforts include preparing an extensive set of civic education resources and practices, addressing six approaches to the subject area that were presented in a report last year.
