TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – The Florida Department of Education’s latest survey shows 88% of educators say the 2022 Summer Civics Professional Learning Series enhanced their civics content knowledge.

More than 2,100 educators in June and July attended the learning series. 87% of attendees said the presenters effectively modeled instructional strategies. The department hosted ten three-day civics trainings for educators across the state.

“Despite the media’s false narrative surrounding Florida’s civics professional learning, our educators found it to be a beneficial and helpful resource for classroom instruction,” said Education Commissioner Manny Diaz. “I am pleased to hear such a positive response from attendees, and I look forward to gathering additional feedback as educators across the state prepare to teach the new revised civics and government standards.”

The sessions prepared teachers for Florida’s revised civics and government standards. The four priorities of Florida civics and government education include:

– Students study primary source documents to understand the philosophical underpinnings
of the American Republic and the root foundation of American exceptionalism.
– Students compare the success of the United States and the success or failure of other
nations’ governing philosophies to evaluate their past, present and likely future effects.
– Students have a sense of civic pride and participate regularly in all levels of government.
– Students reflect upon United States civic history so they understand their rights and
responsibilities as citizens, including the process of advocating properly with government
officials.
