Indiana to require civics classes for middle schoolers starting in Fall 2023

Indiana middle schools will be turning a focus toward civics education starting in the fall of 2022 after the legislature passed a bill this spring requiring civics education for all students in grades 6, 7 and 8.

The bill sets up a commission on civics education, which will be chaired by Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, and will make recommendations on how to make civics a priority in Indiana schools.
