Instruction and testing in civics and government is lacking in many U.S. schools, according to a new report released Wednesday by the nonprofit Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE). Researchers cited a focus on other subjects under No Child Left Behind and other federal policies for the lack of assessments in civics and social studies. The report found, however, that 39 states require at least one high-school course in government or civics to graduate, though students' achievement in the courses is not measured on statewide tests.
Report finds little focus on civics education in U.S. schools
