CAC Citizenship Education News, v2 n3 Jul 1984
This overview of the third annual Jennings Randolph Forum focuses on the role that election campaigns and the political process are capable of playing in citizenship education. Council for the Advancement of Citizenship (CAC) testimony on citizenship education follows a general overview of the conference proceedings. A set of mandates for citizenship education, prepared by conference participants and directed to political parties and candidates, the media, and educational institutions, emphasizes the importance of civic intelligence, critical sensibility, and commitment to community. A CAC Platform Committee statement then emphasizes those mandates that apply directly to political party leaders and proposes specific platform language to both Democratic and Republican Party Platform Committees. The document concludes with "how-to" suggestions for CAC member organizations and local affiliates, outlining immediate action to take; mandates for the 1984 election; and specific mandates for the political parties, the media, and educational institutions.
