Today, CEC released I Educate, I Participate: 2012 Presidential Election Voter Education Guide. This guide is a nonpartisan compilation of resources to help prepare members for the upcoming election. As special educators, it’s our civic responsibility not only to participate ourselves, but to educate our networks, friends and families so that we can all make the best decisions for our students and our schools. The guide’s purpose is to provide you with a one-stop shop for information and resources to help guide you in this election season. In it you’ll find:
- Candidates’ positions and party platforms
- Links that will help you register to vote and find your polling place
- Classroom resources
- A flyer you can use to promote civic engagement
- Resources that direct you to debate schedules and online events you can participate in
