Advocacy and Policy
Be an Advocate for Social Studies Education
There's no group better suited to be advocates for the social studies profession nor better equipped to communicate the importance of social studies education than social studies educators. NCSS's greatest resources in creating greater awareness of the importance of social studies education are our members and our councils. You have the best understanding of social studies; you are in every corner of the United States, and you can reach out to people throughout the country. It is vital that the field of social studies develop and deploy relationships that will protect and expand precious teaching time, scarce budgets, and the content and critical thinking skills that are part of social studies instruction.
