Civics for All!!! Support this Seattle K-12 Civics Initiative now!

Signers of this petition strongly encourage the Seattle Public Schools (SPS) leadership to formally adopt and implement the Civics for All Initiative, which seeks to increase civics instruction/learning for ALL students, including those on the wrong side of the "civics gap." www.civicsforall.org

Why is this important?

The Civics for All Initiative would lift civics requirements in the Seattle Public Schools (SPS)and thereby lift students' civic awareness and engagement. Currently, K-12 students in Seattle know little about civics, about how government works and about their rights and duties as citizens. This is because Seattle's civics education requirements are embarrassingly small. Support for Civics for All has been enormous but the school district has so far shown little interest in this three-year-old proposal. We need you to help convince them! Thanks!
