Texas Civic Health Index Classroom Resources

Communities with strong indicators of civic health as measured by the Civic Health Index have higher employment rates, stronger schools, better physical health, and more responsive governments.

Civic Health Index partnerships have changed the way governments go about their work, reintroduced civics to our classrooms, redirected investments, influenced national and local conversations, and bolstered a network of civic leaders across the country.

America’s Civic Health Assessment is an effort to educate Americans about our civic life and to motivate citizens, leaders, and policymakers to strengthen it. The Texas Civic Health Index provides a comprehensive look at civic and political engagement in Texas. It presents information about who engages in their communities, in politics, and how.
