Led by Outreach and Recruitment Associate Malia Brooks we are working aggressively to bring our civic education programs to cities that may not have the resources to provide K-12 programs. Thirty years ago, the Commonwealth urged school systems to focus on Math and English/Language Arts and STEM, often leaving social studies and Civics behind. We need to rebuild our civic education infrastructure with updated curriculum and professional development for teachers. We are excited about this public- private nonprofit partnership where Discovering Justice can partner with school systems to help provide robust and dynamic civic education, Our outreach this year helped us build a base ion Springfield, a city hungry for civic education for its youth. From that base, we will be able to approach other Western Massachusetts towns.
