Civic Knowledge: Americans’ Ignorance of American Principles, History, & Government Can No Longer Be Ignored

Friends of AHEF,

We invite you to check out this recently updated article on The Founding Blog:

Civic Knowledge: Americans’ Ignorance of American Principles, History, & Government Can No Longer Be Ignored

Studies in the last 20 years show that many Americans of all backgrounds do not possess adequate civic knowledge about our nation’s history, founding ideas, and governing institutions.  This widespread deficiency among the general public is a serious problem in a self-governing republic such as ours which relies on an educated citizenry to govern itself.  If these trends continue, America will not be able to endure as it was designed by our Founders.

The American Heritage Education Foundation (AHEF) is working to address this growing national educational problem.  AHEF is dedicated to promoting the teaching and learning of America’s factual, philosophical heritage, emphasizing themes of freedom, unity, progress, and responsibility.  AHEF offers educational resources to help teachers, homeschoolers, schools, and citizens learn and effectively teach about America’s founding documents, principles, and history.
