onward with the Civic Mission

Here is Justice O'Connor, co-chair of the national advisory council of the Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools. She is standing with the Campaign's Steering Committee, only some of whom fit within the column width of my blog, on the terrace of the Newseum in Washington, DC. The Steering Committee represents almost all of the specialized organizations that offer various forms of civic education or service-learning, plus many important stakeholders such as the teachers' unions and the National Association of School Boards. I think that's me in the back, although it could be some other civic ed guy with short hair.

Anyway, after this picture was taken we repaired to a conference room and spent a profitable day (last Monday) discussing next steps in the struggle for civic education.
