Policy vs Politics Hosts Panel with More Like Us and Arizona State University's Center for American Civics for Civic Learning Week!

WHITEHOUSE, N.J. - March 27, 2024 - PRLog -- For Civic Learning Week 2024, Policy vs Politics hosted a panel on "Less Stress, More Learning: Simple Ways to Discuss Policy in Your Classroom," in collaboration with More Like Us and the Arizona State University Center for American Civics. Featured speakers included Policy vs Politics research lead Dr. Bill Bianco, and Executive Director of More Like Us, James Coan. Moderating the discussion was Liz Evans, NBTC, Program Director for Civic Education at the ASU Center for American Civics.

Ranked as #1 in innovation for nine years in a row by US News and World Report, ASU is a leader in research and social impact. Under the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership, the ASU Center for American Civics supports civic education at all levels within and beyond the classroom environment.

During the panel, attendees had the opportunity to take part in key discussions around policy education in their classrooms. Topics included ways to better vet data for students and how closing the "Perception Gap" (the finding that Americans are more similar across the political spectrum than they typically think) can facilitate better classroom civil discourse.

The panel was hosted as a community event for Civic Learning Week, a digital and in-person initiative of CivXNow that unites students, educators, policymakers, and private sector leaders to energize the movement for civic education across the nation. Policy vs Politics joined the CivXNow Coalition in December 2023 and has been an active member since. The coalition is comprised of over 350 member organizations and groups, and pledges to ensure that every young person acquires the civic knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary for informed, authentic, and engaged civic participation.
