Session 0.1: Voter Education Programs in Schools: East and West

America's Center 120

National context powerfully shapes voter education (nations create schools to serve national purposes). This symposium presents four papers on school-based voter education in three nations: Singapore and Japan, one paper each; and the United States, two papers. A critique is provided by a respected scholar of comparative civic education.
