CT Council for the Social Studies Public Affairs Committee

Because Every Student Becomes a Citizen

We are teachers and advocates for the Social Studies who believe deeply that Social Studies is important in the lives of the students of the state of Connecticut and for our future as a democratic society. Therefore, we simply cannot let the fates determine if our future generations understand the duties and freedoms associated with being members of a democratic society, gain perspective on the world, or appreciate the sacrifices our parents made.

All of us need to work actively to give our students the learning experiences they need to join our ranks as educated and skilled members of our society.

We must work now to align our actions with our values.

Please take a look around the site, and JOIN US IN FIGHTING FOR THE SOCIAL STUDIES and FOR OUR STUDENTS.

    Every student IS a citizen, not just becoming one (John Dewey, 1944). This makes the message of CCSS even more important.

    Every student is a citizen of the world now — learning modern geography is fundamental to understanding what it means today to belong to local, national, and global community.
