Guardian of Democracy: The Civic Mission of Schools

(Philadelphia) I am at the National Constitution Center to help release Guardian of Democracy, a successor report to The Civic Mission of Schools, which CIRCLE and Carnegie Corporation of New York released in 2003. The original report became the charter document of the Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools, the nation’s leading advocacy campaign in civics. Guardian of Democracy reflects another eight years of research, experience, and organizing. Many people were involved in producing the new report, which I consider the guide to policy for civic education.
