An editorial in the Washington Post named the Center for Civic Education as one of the most prominent organizations in fighting civic illiteracy. The article decries the fact that only 2 percent of high school seniors knew what Brown v. Board of Education was about. “Civic apathy is nothing new, but the reports are increasingly dire. Clearly, young people are not getting enough education in American history or civics. Half the states lack any statutory civics assessments. As states move forward with curriculum and testing reforms, civics should be a priority.” The Post notes that “The Center for Civic Education has developed a fairly comprehensive curriculum, including activities such as congressional simulations.”
