The Civics Secures Democracy Act (H.R.1814/S.879)
The Civics Secures Democracy Act (H.R.1814/S.879) would provide $1 billion each year for six years in federal grants for civics education. While the legislation is bipartisan, it has been supported by a number of left-leaning groups such as iCivics, and a broader coalition called CivXNow. This strategy, similar to that used to implement Common Core, would use grants to drive curriculum, and raises concern that once implemented, could develop into in-effect national standards for civics education.
