UW-Madison’s Diana Hess appeared on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “The Morning Show” earlier this week to talk about the importance of civics education. Despite requiring high schoolers to pass a civics test, Wisconsin is one of the few states in the country that doesn’t require schools to offer a civics course. Hess, who is Dean of the School of Education, has spent much of her career researching the impact of school-based civic education programs and how students experience and learn from discussions of highly controversial political issues.
