Civic Study Gives Failing Grade to American Youth
Yesterday, the Educational Testing Service released a new study that gives a failing grade to American youth for civic proficiency.
Among the dismal findings:
Only approx. 25% of middle and high school students demonstrate “proficient” civic knowledge and understanding of American history.
The oldest, most highly educated, and highest income Americans are 7 times more likely to vote than young, less educated, and low income Americans.
