Learning Civics through Digital Engagement: An Oxymoron?
de Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom Practice de larrycuban

Left far behind in the wake of No Child Left Behind has been the teaching of Civics. Once a ninth grade fixture in social studies since World War I–yes, a century ago in a surge of enthusiastic curricular change, educational progressives in the U.S. established Civics to prepare students to be responsible citizens. By the 1950s, U.S. students took Civics, Problems of American Democracy, and U.S. Government in high school. Since then, these courses have shrunk considerably.

The decline in course-taking has occurred over decades as policy elites have replaced the civic mission of public schools with one that seeks to make public schools an arm of the economy. With state standardized tests and accountability seizing schools over the past quarter-century, teaching Civics has become a casualty of the narrowed school curriculum. Whether course-taking is equivalent to civic literacy is debatable but the 2010 National Assessment of Educational Progress in Civics revealed widespread lack of knowledge about the mechanics of government and democratic practices.
