Civic Circle Song Debuts at Maryland Summit

The Civic Circle's new video about news literacy, "Whisper Down the Lane," had its debut at the Maryland Civic Education and Engagement Leadership Summit.

The song, performed here by the wonderful Lea Morris, was the curtain raiser for a summit round-table on media literacy in an era of "Truth Decay." Put on by the emerging Maryland Civic Education Coalition (The Civic Circle is a member), the summit also featured round-tables on service-learning and civil discourse, and remarks by former Education Secretary John B. King, Jr., the president and CEO of the Education Trust.

You can watch King's remarks here, and catch up on the whole summit at the coalition home page. The Civic Circle is gratified to be part of a statewide movement to advance civic learning in Maryland.
