Advancements in Civics Award Elementary Student I have a light and it wont turn on.then you come in and it turns on!! Thank you for being our partner! Teachers and principals

Thank you for demonstrating a human side to justice. It is so important for students to see that the courts are more than a process. Most students have never met a judge. As a teacher, I think it is important for students to experience the institutions of government, not just learn about them from a book.

For our government to improve, we need to listen to our students. Thank you for listening. Justice Teaching Center The Justice Teaching Center for Civic Learning inculcates the mission and goals of Florida

Southern College to prepare students to make a positive and consequential impact on society through engaged law-focused civic learning opportunities. Come join us in our work. Contact : justiceteachin [email protected] .edu Strengthening Civics in Florida
