Local Policy Toolkit

The National Association of Scholars upholds the standards of a liberal arts education that fosters intellectual freedom, searches for the truth, and promotes virtuous citizenship.

Local Policy Toolkit


The National Association of Scholars has crafted a range of materials for the use of civics reformers at the local level. Any civics reformer may use and/or modify these materials. Where appropriate, please credit the NAS--but please also signal where the NAS’s materials have been modified.
