Why Adult Education?

The lack of adequate school-age civics has been well documented by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Like www.icivics.org, which she helped found after retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court, most civics teaching has been aimed at young populations.

But the lack of detailed civic knowledge is also severe among adults, and the immediate consequences are potentially greater. Voters choose judges in many states; act as litigants and jurors; support or oppose political attacks against courts; and communicate to legislators about budget priorities.
 
Therefore, lack of adult citizen engagement exposes courts to grave and growing risks.
