Justice O’Connor stresses civic service at Eureka visit
“It may not always be fun, but it is fundamental. Ad it teaches us many important civic virtues like civic discourse, about consensus building and compromise,” Justice O’Connor says.
Justice O’Connor says that younger students are not being educated in civics compared to previous decades. That why she says she founded an online program that teaches middle school students about civic education. Justice O’Connor served more than 25 years as an associate justice on the Supreme Court before retiring in 2006.
