With the passage of An Act To Promote And Enhance Civic Engagement, MAHSD is continuing its work on civics education by supporting the MA Civic Learning Coalition.
About the MA Civic Learning Coalition
MAHSD worked with the MA Civic Learning Coalition last year to secure the passage of An Act to Promote And Enhance Civic Engagement. This landmark legislation mandated that comprehensive, project based civics education be taught in Massachusetts K-12 schools. Now it’s time to make sure that the legislation receives the funding it deserves. The goal of the coalition now is to ensure that the Civics Trust Fund, created by the passage of the legislation, is funded with $1.5 million. This funding would allow for the implementation of the legislation across Massachusetts.
