Please join The Reagan Institute on October 25th at 3PM ET, 1 PM MT for “The State of Civics: Colorado.” Moderated by Dr. Janet Tran, Director of the Center for Civics, Education, and Opportunity, this virtual conversation will highlight the exemplary civic education initiatives of Colorado. Colorado Commissioner of Education, Katy Anthes, Senior Director of Outreach and Partnerships for Educating for American Democracy, Ace Parsi, Elementary Technology Instructor at Peak to Peak Charter School, Kathleen Weil, and CU Denver First Gen and GlobalMindED Leader, Yusura Ali will discuss their current efforts and experiences that lift civics in Colorado schools as well as their goals for the future.
Colorado is the fourth state in the “State of Civics”series hosted by the Reagan Institute. The aim of this series is to better understand the current state policy environment for civic learning and engagement across the country. Civic learning not only supports academic achievement and 21st Century workforce skills but serves as a key to strengthening our democratic republic.
