Why Should I Attend the Regional Civic Education Task Force Hearing?

All members of the public are invited to attend this free hearing. We are holding this meeting to receive feedback from
you
about these recommendations and to engage key local and regional
stakeholders and opinion leaders in the conversation about access to quality
civic learning in your area.

You're invited to participate
in one of several regional meetings across the state led by the California Task
Force on K-12 Civic Learning. The Task Force was established by California
Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye and State Superintendent of Public
Instruction Tom Torlakson, to bring definition to the skills, knowledge,
and dispositions that our students need to be informed and engaged citizens and
community members
, and make recommendations for how we can achieve these
outcomes for all students in California. Co-Chaired by the Honorable
Judith McConnell and Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David Gordon,
the Task Force has drafted a number of recommendations regarding standards,
assessments, and accountability; teaching and curriculum; families, communities
and businesses; and funding.
