Press Release: NAS Unveils Civics Alliance Website

National Association of Scholars

New York, NY; March 1, 2022 – In March 2021, the National Association of Scholars convened the Civics Alliance, a national coalition of organizations and citizens dedicated to preserving and improving an American civics education that teaches students about the founding principles of the United States, the structure of our self-governing republic, and the functions of our government and key institutions. America’s children should learn to take pride in what they share as Americans: an exceptional heritage of freedom, a republic with liberty as a fundamental principle, and the accomplishments of a common national culture.

The Civics Alliance has been working steadily to provide resources for citizens, school board members, and policymakers who are dedicated to opposing Critical Race Theory (CRT) and action civics (vocational training in progressive activism) and to restoring excellent civics education to America’s K-12 schools. Now the Civics Alliance’s dedicated website makes these resources easily available for every American.

The Civics Alliance website includes:

The Civics Alliance website will provide the latest information on the radical assault on civics education, model content for civics education, and news about the ways education reformers are working to restore an American civics education. The Civics Alliance and its website will be a clearinghouse for Americans who want to restore a civics education that teaches students about America’s exceptional heritage of freedom.

NAS is a network of scholars and citizens united by a commitment to academic freedom, disinterested scholarship, and excellence in American higher education. Membership in NAS is open to all who share a commitment to these broad principles. NAS publishes a journal and has state and regional affiliates. Visit NAS at www.nas.org.
