Indiana Civics Classes

Civics would be a bigger part of your kids’ school day under recommendations from an Indiana task force.

The 16-member task force of educators and representatives of all three branches of government says civics should be added to Indiana’s curriculum standards when they come up for review again in five years, with civics and political science courses added to the requirements for a teaching license.

The task force recommends requiring fifth and eighth graders to complete a civics education project and get involved in new initiatives either in their schools or in the community.
