Progress and Opportunity: Taking Stock of the 2018 Civic Education Law
This event is organized by the MA Civic Learning Coalition (MCLC).

In 2018, the Massachusetts Legislature passed and Governor signed the Civics Education Law which prioritized civics learning in Grades K-12. Five years later, civic education has made a comeback in the Commonwealth with new updated curriculum and professional development to help guide our schools and teachers. Still, many school system continue to lag behind with students not having the opportunity to learn about our democracy and how to engage. Come listen to teachers and students tell the stories of their civics learning and the need for increased state investment to meet the needs of student's all across Massachusetts.

Please note this event is in-person at the Massachusetts State House in Room 428.
