Overview

Every child and adult in the United States, regardless of location or demographics, should develop a deep understanding of—and appreciation for—our constitutional democracy. Their learning should be grounded in an understanding of how to discern high quality information. These learners of all ages are the stewards of our country’s political traditions, deliberative culture, public institutions and sense of mutual obligation.
