Education should prepare Tennessee students for career, college and full participation in civic life. But today, Tennessee’s youth has one of the lowest civic participation rates in the country.
Developed in partnership with Complete Tennessee, our policy brief addresses the state of civic engagement and learning among Tennessee’s youth and provides a comprehensive look at how education is key to fostering a stronger citizenry. The brief highlights solutions other states have implemented to enhance civic learning and youth engagement and provides a roadmap of possible next steps for Tennessee policymakers. (2018)
