Social Science Quote: Education and Civic Participation

Education civic participationA well-rounded education includes engaging students on becoming involved in civic participation.

Robert Pondiscio, executive director of Citizenship First says:

“Understanding how to pull the levers of government, how to organise and make one’s voice heard to effect change is an essential part of a good education… If students leave high school without seeing themselves as active participants in democratic processes, something has gone very wrong.”
