Secretary of Education Arne Duncan Lauds Civic Voices
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Professor Charles White joined with partners from eight countries to celebrate the culminating event of the Civic Voices project – a global showcase of the Civic Voices International Democracy Memory Bank – held at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C.
Country coordinators from the U.S., Republic of Georgia, Northern Ireland, Poland, South Africa, the Philippines, South Africa, and Mongolia displayed video excerpts of civic activists’ interviews from each country, now available in full on the Civic Voices website. Professor White was the project’s director of professional development and lead teacher workshops in partner countries.
