Civic Learning Earns Recognition

Students study the causes and effects of poverty throughout European history and develop an action plan in a high-level history class. Others plan their own Model United Nations conference.

Such examples of civic engagement resulted in an Award of Merit for Laguna Beach High School, one of seven schools in the county recognized for its civic studies, says a district statement.

The award is co-sponsored by Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye and State Superintendent Tom Torlakson. Winners are selected by experts based on the depth and breadth of school classes, clubs, and programs.
