What We’re Reading

September 4, 2015
Every week, GC picks out a selection of articles that are relevant to our work and to the civics education space as a whole. We at GC love to expand our learning in every aspect of what we do, and we hope you enjoy our selections!

 

Millenials Don’t Believe in Voting, Boston Globe: Columnist Joanna Weiss dives into the worsening problem of young people not participating in politics.  Despite an Obama bump, 2016 could see a big downward trajectory.  Do young people not care, or just not believe in politics?

 

Effective Altruism, New York Times: We obviously think a lot about fundraising at Generation Citizen- how can people be rational about their giving without being over-reliant on statistics?

 

The Citizen Pre-Schooler, The Atlantic: Is it ever too early to teach young people how to participate in our democracy?  Harvard’s Project Zero is trying to figure out how to teach pre-schoolers to learn about civics as early as possible.
