New Vision Civics provides a comprehensive civics education for Jamaicans of all ages.
Primarily created for students at the upper primary, secondary and tertiary levels, the book integrates many subjects: social studies, history, government and public administration, culture, media literacy, freedoms and privileges, the environment, and foreign policy.
The book pays special attention to youth development and empowerment, providing a guide to greater participation in national, civic and political life. Importantly, these young adults are guided to a trajectory of excellence and integrity, to carry the baton into the future, with a sense of urgency, responsibility, and commitment to the public good.
The book inspires critical thinking and is transformative in its approach.
New Vision Civics has been endorsed by the Ministry of Education for grades 7-9, and for teachers at the tertiary level. Based on its expansive coverage, the Ministry has also recommended the book for students of history, social studies, culture and other disciplines.
