Primary Source Spotlight: CITIZENARTS
We are pleased to spotlight CITIZENARTS, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing civic education programs to colleges and universities as well as to public policy and business groups throughout the U.S. and internationally. CITIZENARTS’ Senior Partners Jill and Jim Gabbe recently visited a scholar keynote session at our summer institute Cultural Proficiency for Today’s Diverse Schools and immediately recognized the synergies between the Primary Source mission to create an informed American public through teacher professional development and their organization’s objectives.
