Why It Matters

State governments should play a far stronger role than the federal government in setting civics curricula. Even here, however, civics reformers should be cautious. Policymakers should be informed that civics legislation should be carefully scrutinized, to make sure it does not provide unintentional support for action civics.

Subject Line: The Partisanship Out of Civics Act Defends Civics Education

Dear Representative/Senator ________,

 

As an [educator / parent / position at _____ member organization], and as your constituent, I am writing to inform you about the Partisanship Out of Civics Act. The Partisanship Out of Civics Act supports American history and civic education by prohibiting action civics (substitutes radical community organizing for civics education), activism, and discriminatory racial concepts from social studies classes.

I urge you to read Stanley Kurtz ‘s article “‘Action Civics,’ Replaces Citizenship with Partisanship” (https://americanmind.org/memo/action-civics-replaces-citizenship-with-partisanship/). I also urge you to read Kurtz’s “How to Keep CRT and Action Civics Out of K-12” (https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/how-to-keep-crt-and-action-civics-out-of-k-12/) and Peter Wood’s “Why We Need a Civics Alliance” (https://www.nas.org/blogs/article/nas-announces-the-civics-alliance). These articles explain the real nature of action civics and how the Partisanship Out of Civics Act will preserve real civics education

I want to preserve civics education and I know you do also. You should know that the Partisanship Out of Civics Act provides effective defense against action civics and Critical Race Theory.
