Social Studies: More Important than Ever

Social studies education provides the essential foundation for students to be citizens in a complicated and ever-changing world. Students need to be prepared to participate effectively in their communities as well as at the state, national, and international levels. It is clear that K-12 students must be taught the essential skills, understandings, and dispositions in our schools. Please join the 64th annual Pennsylvania Council for the Social Studies conference to learn how social studies educators from across the state and region are engaging is this important work.
