How is civics taught in higher education? How do our universities seek to fulfill their civic mission?
With these questions in mind, the NAS examined three case studies on three states—Arizona, Utah, and Texas. The case studies found that, while each state requires some form of history and government education, that conventional form of civics education is being overshadowed by the rise of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. In this webinar, we discuss those findings, along with policy solutions.
The webinar features Matt Beienburg, Director of Education Policy at the Goldwater Institute; Richard Lowery, National Association of Scholars Affiliate Head and Associate Professor of Finance at UT Austin; and John Sailer, Research Associate at the National Association of Scholars and author of Educating for Citizenship. The discussion is moderated by Mason Goad, Junior Researcher at the National Association of Scholars.
