California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye announced today the recipients of the 2018-2019 Civic Learning Awards to 92 schools, the most award recipients in the program’s history.
When Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye started her Civic Learning Initiative in 2013, she discovered that little time was devoted to teaching civics in California K-12 public schools, with no plans to bring it back.
Seventy-five public schools were honored with Civic Learning Awards, which are co-sponsored by the Chief Justice and State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye was the keynote speaker at a Constitution Day event held at the U.S. District Court in Sacramento.
Applications are now available online for the 2016-17 Civic Learning Awards.
Chief is recognized for her leadership on advancing civics education for all California students.
More than 50 California public elementary, middle, and high schools are being recognized with this year’s Civic Learning Awards.
