“Inspired to Serve” report recommends federal investment in service learning

Inspired to Serve presents The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service’s conclusions, including findings and recommendations for legislative and administrative action as well as recommendations for expanding civic education and service-learning in K-12 schools across the country.

One major finding of the report was the need to revitalize civic education and expand service learning.  In the course of its work, the Commission identified a major flaw in the American educational system: the lack of exposure to high-quality civic education for students throughout much of the Nation.

The Commission recommends that Congress appropriate $450 million per year for civic education and service learning. Read the full report HERE.
