We the People taught me more than any other class I've
taken—in high school, college, and law school. We the
People taught me that citizens—of all ages, from
anywhere—can shape national policy. We the People
taught me to believe in this country.
This will be my thirtieth year teaching high school
American government...Nothing I have ever done, no
curriculum I have used, and no program of motivation
that I have tried has been as effective in as many
aspects of civic education as the We the People program.
It's not just about 'knowledge,' it's about providing
students with the skills and the attitude that THEY
are the 'people' in 'WE THE PEOPLE!'
