Misinformed Voters Are A Threat To National And Economic Security.
Greg Ferenstein

This is a 14 minute read. I’d take out nearly all the examples, including the quickly-dated Trump stuff, and start with a succinct problem statement (what you’re trying to solve) and end with the question of what could a civic education movement become. Right now you’re diluting your hypothesis and your call for action, and you’re not teasing the rest of the book. You’re muddling it all by trying to do too much. Take out two-thirds and you’ll have a much sexier, powerful first chapter. Save that material to answer questions in later chapters (If we did it before can we do it again? How do we fund this change? How do we make civics the national pastime between elections? Why focus on public school?)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
