Civic education is essential for developing civic responsibility.
Civic knowledge and responsibility are one of the key issues to develop the nation. Civic education is the process of educating citizens on their rights, responsibilities, and duties to empower and motivate them to identify what areas of the governance processes they can effectively participate in; what they can do to improve the quality of governance at both local and national levels.
