CIVICS EDUCATION

By Christene Campbell-Gabor, Chair, Civics Education

 

LWVPBC Chair of Civics Education, Christene Campbell-Gabor, met with Doug Dobson, Executive Director of the Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government in Orlando to discuss Civics Education.

 

The Institute serves every District in Florida and is a recognized national leader in Civics Education. The Institute supports continuous improvement in civic learning and provides excellent sites for teachers, supervisors, and students.

 

All Lou Frey Institute tools and programs are free and available for the League to use and share.  The LWVPBC Civics Education Committee is researching the sites to see how we might work together in the future and/or share the data and programs with the schools.  Contact Christene at cgabor5@gmail if you have any questions or if you would like to help with the research.
