State Bar of Texas develops civics education program for Texas teachers and students
The State Bar of Texas has designed an interactive web-based project to assist Texas teachers and middle and high school students in preparing for the new Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards in the areas of government, history, citizenship and culture.
Civics education is a key component of State Bar of Texas President Bob Black’s initiatives this year, and he is working with the State Bar’s Law-Related Education Department to educate students as a way to help create more responsible citizens who one day will vote, sit on a jury, or become a public servant.
