Chamber Submits Testimony Supporting Civics Education

On March 20, 2018, the Greater Boston Chamber signed on to a Massachusetts Civic Learning Coalition statement of support for S.2306, An Act to promote and enhance civic engagement. In addition to expanded American history and civics education requirements, the proposal mandates that every student in a Massachusetts public school system have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of two student-led civics projects. The Chamber believes that expanded civics education benefits all students and prepares them for an informed political and civic life. Read the statement of support
