November Fifth Coalition: new materials

I've been working on the website of the November Fifth Coalition, whose purpose is to inject civic themes into the 2008 election. (By "civic," we don't mean civility and consensus, but concrete, active work by citizens--some of which is pretty contentious.)

We have a policy statement on "Putting Citizens Back in the Center of Education." It describes education as not just the job of schools, but as a community-wide function whose purpose is to transmit values, culture, knowledge, and skills to the next generation.

We also have some interesting examples of civic work and a "news" page with clips and blog feeds about civic engagement.
