THE Civics Project
The Civics Project, a collaboration of Florida Atlantic University and The Palm Beach Post, is a weekly column written by Political Science Professor and Constitutional Scholar Kevin Wagner, Ph.D. The column, which features questions from readers, is published in several USA Today Network newspapers throughout Florida.
In a country like ours, it is very important that we understand the history, principles, and founding documents of our nation. In the United States, power is vested in the people. Being a citizen is about both rights and duties. It’s not just to what we are entitled, but it’s what we owe to our nation and the people around us. On this page, let us learn together about how our country and community work. The Civics Project features weekly topics about government and the U.S. Constitution, and can be used as a resource for Civics Education.
