The Center for Civic Education is a non-partisan educational corporation started in 1969 in Calabasas, California, to educate America's citizens about democratic principles. Their website's "About Us" section has a powerful quote by Thomas Jefferson that sums up their rationale and goals for starting the Center: "I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves, and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion." Visitors will definitely enjoy learning a few civics lessons by answering the questions in the "60 Second Civics" podcasts that can be found on the homepage. Once a visitor answers the multiple choice daily quiz question, the podcast offers an explanation of the right answer. Archived 60 Second Civics podcasts can be accessed by visitors clicking on the modified stopwatch on the homepage, or by clicking on the "Multimedia" link on the far right side of the page. Additionally, visitors will also find videos and slideshows to peruse under the multimedia link.
