Tara Bartlett is a doctoral student in Arizona State University’s Educational Policy and Evaluation program. Her research focuses on youth participatory governance, community development, and civics efficacy. Before pursuing a doctoral degree, Tara was public school educator for fourteen years and taught English Language Arts and Social Studies in Title I middle schools. The experience, coupled with the observed outcomes of civic programs in her classroom, led Tara to reimagine how K12 education can integrate participatory governance opportunities for youth and families and better equip youth with the knowledge, attitudes, skills, and practices to become political and civic changemakers within their own communities.
