Rebecca Winthrop is a senior fellow and co-director of the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution.
Only two in five Americans can name the three branches of government. Does that correlate with the approximately 80 percent that doesn’t trust the government at all? Rebecca Winthrop, co-director of the Center for Universal Education and a senior fellow of Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution, joins host Krys Boyd to argue that, without teaching the fundamentals of how our government works, we’ll never convince people to get out the vote. Her brief for Policy 2020 Brookings is “The Need for Civic Education in 21st-century schools.”
