Podcast host and educator Cindy Schwartz will pose the question "Is civics dead?" to the public, mayors, assemblywomen, and councilwomen on March 7, 2020, to celebrate 100 years of women's suffrage.
Polls, surveys, and assessments have all consistently shown the impact of sidelining the teaching of social studies. American students lack a basic understanding of citizenship, the election process, and the role of the media in our elections.
Coinciding with the statewide Girl Scout Voter Girl event, Schwartz's presentation will include engagement with the audience and elected officials on the voting process, safety of completing the Census 2020 form, and school curriculum changes.
Is Civics Dead? will be held from 10 am to 1 pm at the duCret School of the Arts, 1030 Central Avenue, Plainfield, NJ.
