Purpose: The New Civics Initiative Invites Research Proposals That Ask Critical Questions About How Education Can More Effectively Contribute To The Civic Development Of Young People. As A Start, We Ask What Experiences, Environments, And Contexts Help Young People, From All Walks Of Life, Develop The Habits, Skills, Understandings, And Dispositions That Encourage Informed Participation In Civic Affairs. In So Doing We Seek To Connect To A Tradition Of Civic Education Inside Schools, Both To Reassert Its Legitimacy As A Primary Aim Of Public Schooling, And To Reimagine What Civic Education Might Include. Yet Civic Development Also Occurs Outside Classrooms And Schools, And We Underscore Our Interest In Research About Civic Action And Learning In Those Contexts As Well. Our Ultimate Aim Is To Contribute To Educational Improvement By Supporting High-quality Research Studies That Can Lead To Better-designed, More Effective Programs, Policies, Practices, And Settings That Prepare Young People To Act And To Do So In Informed And Reasoned Ways.
