The Battle Over American History and Civics: The Traps and Perils of Having a National Plan
April 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm EDT
A broad consensus has formed for improved instruction in American history and civics. Multiple studies and assessments indicate that Americans have an appallingly deficient understanding of their history and their governing process. And, of course, the events of political violence over the last year exacerbate those concerns.
But what should such an effort look like? Should it be based within the states? Should Congress adopt a national strategy? If so, should that be overseen by the federal bureaucracy and implemented by the states?
For a Faith and Law Friday Forum, join IHE Director of the Program on the Constitution and Catholic Social Doctrine Emmett McGroarty for a conversation on U.S. civics and history education with Stanley Kurtz (Ethics and Public Policy Center) and Bill McClay (Liberty University).
