The National Assessment Governing Board has released its 2014 findings of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as “the Nation’s Report Card,” in U.S. History and Civics.
The report shows that less than half of 8th-graders are proficient in U. S. History and Civics. (18% are proficient in U. S. History. 23% are proficient in Civics. 27% are proficient in Geography.) The findings indicate a need for History and Civics education among students. See www.nationsreportcard.gov.
