THE PROBLEM 

Civic education in the United States has been deprioritized,
which adversely affects students, adults and society at large:

03

Poor civic education leads to startling knowledge gaps for adult Americans. For example, according to a 2016 Brookings Institute study, only a quarter of the American public could name all three branches of government.

04

According to the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, only 36% of Americans can pass a test made up of questions from the citizenship test, which falls to 19% for Americans under 45. In comparison, 90% of immigrants seeking citizenship can pass the same test.
