ETS Report on Civic Engagement and Education

In a recently released report, the Educational Testing Service (ETS) calls for educational leadership to address gaps in civic knowledge and participation currently afflicting American society. The report, titled “Fault Lines in Our Democracy: Civic Knowledge, Voting Behavior, and Civic Engagement in the United States,” points to distressing findings about students’ low levels of civic knowledge and troubling correlations between educational level and civic engagement.
