Civic Literacy Report
We want to report more on this, but for now:
A study of 14,000 college freshmen and seniors at 50 (good) schools reveals:

  • There is trivial difference between freshmen and seniors in their knowledge of America's heritage.

  • At 16 of 50 schools, seniors knew less than freshmen!

  • Overall, seniors failed the civic literacy exam with an average score of 53%.
