Chris and Jesse are joined by Amy Curren, the Executive Director of the Oklahoma chapter of Generation Citizen, which is a program center around action civics and civics education. In this episode, we discuss the importance of educating young people on how to participate in a democracy, and why it is essential that their voices are being used to be heard. While Curren works for the Oklahoma chapter of Generation Citizen, she is adamant about their work in civics showing results on a more universal scale. She expressed her desire for Oklahoma to be a hub for conferences where teachers can come for social studies professional development. Curren urges adults and students to expect more out of their local schools’ civics education in hopes that it will improve on a larger-than-local scale.
