Coming Crisis in Citizenship: Higher Educationís Failure to Teach Americaís History and Institutions
T. Kenneth Cribb, Jr. (fr); Josiah Bunting, III (fr)
Presents scientific evidence that, for the very first time, reveals how much American colleges & univ. -- including some of our most elite schools -- add to, or subtract from, their graduatesí understanding of Americaís history & fundamental institutions. This study represents the culmination of a multiyear research process involving a team of prof. experienced in the classroom, the Nat. Civic Literacy Board, & the Univ. of Connecticutís Dept. of Public Policy. Findings: (1) Americaís colleges & univ. fail to increase knowledge about Americaís history & institutions; (2) Prestige doesnít pay off; (3) Students donít learn what colleges donít teach; & (4) Greater civic learning goes hand-in-hand with more active citizenship. Includes recommendations. Illustrations.
