Brad Avakian: Oregon's Labor Commissioner

What’s missing in our schools?

Oregon kids are back to class. They’re learning foreign languages, math, and science – but one thing is missing in too many schools: civics.

If our young people are never taught the basics, how can we expect them to participate in our democracy?

As Secretary of State, I’ll fight to return civics education to every school in Oregon. Every student in public school should learn how government works, who their elected leaders are, and how change is made.

Civics education

Civics education will enrich and strengthen our democracy, and make Oregon a better state. With everything going on in the world, Oregonians deserve to be informed from the get-go.
