SACRAMENTO — After a year-long process of assessing the state of civic learning in schools throughout the state, the Task Force on K-12 Civic Learning presented its recommendations to ensure all kindergarten through 12th-grade students gain the knowledge, skills and values they need to succeed in college, career and civic life during a unveiling here Tuesday.

These recommendations include: revision of the state history/social science content standards; integration of civic learning into state assessment and accountability systems; improved professional learning for teachers connected to Common Core State Standards; sharing of curriculum resources and best practices; and engaging stakeholders from local government, business, the courts, nonprofits, community organizations and parents, according to a Power of Democracy press release.
