Kentucky Civic Education Coalition (KCEC)

Visit KCEC's website to learn more and join the coalition.

The Kentucky Council for the Social Studies (KCSS) is building a civic education advocacy coalition. The Kentucky Civic Education Coalition (KCEC) will bring together a non-partisan coalition of partners committed to preparing all students to be informed, engaged participants in Kentucky’s civic life. See more at the link above.


It is incredibly important to us that we have educators and students at the table, united by a passion for Kentucky education and authentic civic learning. Membership is open to all Kentuckians (and beyond!). As educators supporting students in exploring their curiosities and finding information about the world around them, librarians have a special role in civic education.
