Civic Education Initiative

Civic Education Initiative

Building on our twenty years of work with high school teachers, FPRI’s Center for the Study of America and the West has begun an ambitious program in Civic Education for students. This initiative includes both partnerships with local schools and the production of materials aimed at school audiences, to enrich young people’s understanding of the institutions and ideas that shape American political life.

Through the development of multimedia primers on important American and Western institutions, as well as a series of educational simulation programs on the founding and the cornerstones of American liberty, the Center is making a timely contribution to civic education and good citizenship not only in Philadelphia but nationally.
