A great nation’s disgrace: the National Assessment of Educational Progress. Civics report card, May 4, 2011.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress.

Although I am from the UK, Today’s article by Dr Jeffrey Lant, CEO Worldprofit, struck a familiar note with me. Although he is talking about a problem currently being experienced in the US, regarding their own education system, almost the same could be said of the eduction system in the UK.

This article discusses the following:

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America’s students know and can do in various subject areas. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history.

But if you are reading this in the UK, think about what our own children are being taught in UK schools, colleges and universities. Yes we also have mathematics, reading (english literature and language) science, writing skills, arts, economics, geography and British history.

You notice I missed out ‘civics’, which is what this article is principally about, or specifically the lack of proper education of civics in US schools. Civics is the study of US democratic procedure and policy which should allow the students to be able to understand them once they get out into the real world.

I discussed this with Dr Lant this morning as he was writing his article and he mentioned that the ‘Youth culture’ has taken over and anyone not part of it, simply cannot talk to the youth of today. They have their own language and thoughts which do not include politics, the royal family and such like. They are just not interested!

Unfortunately this is also a UK problem, I was genuinely surprised how many early twenties adults, did not vote or know what they are voting for in this weeks referendum, or who were not interested in the Royal wedding last week and were even making inappropriate comments on Facebook about it.
