"Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education."
- Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Welcome to the Sacramento County Office of Education’s Action Civics Initiative website. Throughout this site you will find valuable resources to create a rich student-centered environment that places Civics and civic engagement at the heart of student learning. From research documents to videos of Civics in action to our online community, teachers, schools, and districts will be able to infuse a greater sense of civic responsibility through the entire curriculum, not just in Civics and Government classes.
Watch a multimedia overview of the project.
