Foundation staff and trustees are invited to join us for a panel discussion about the importance of civic education, why it matters to democracy and civil society, and what we can learn from research about best practices in this area. We will also discuss the opportunity that new Massachusetts legislation presents to improve teaching and learning about civics education throughout the Commonwealth, and what private funders may do to strengthen this effort. We hope you can join us for this timely conversation.
