The debate over how and when to teach civics is ongoing and has been somewhat contentious between progressives and conservatives.

For many, the need to find common ground became even more important during the four years of the Trump administration and reached its zenith with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Paul Carrese of Arizona State University's School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership was involved with a team of scholars in developing the "Roadmap to Educating for American Democracy."

The Show spoke with him to learn about the project and what spurred his involvement.
