Civics Today: Citizenship, Economics, and You © 2008
About the Program
Many young citizens are completing their education with little or no sense of civic responsibility. This program teaches the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective, active citizen. It also encourages an appreciation for the American political system and fosters a willingness to take part in American democracy.
Two economics units provide an understanding of the interrelationship between democracy and the free enterprise system.
