What Is The Regional Civic Education Task Force?
The Task Force was established by California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, to bring definition to the skills, knowledge, and dispositions that our students need to be informed and engaged citizens and community members, and make recommendations for how we can achieve these outcomes for all students in California. Co-Chaired by the Honorable Judith McConnell and Sacramento County Superintendent of Schools David Gordon, the Task Force has drafted a number of recommendations regarding standards, assessments, and accountability; teaching and curriculum; families, communities and businesses; and funding.
