Failing History in America

WASHINGTON, September 26, 2006 – An unprecedented study of more than 14,000 randomly selected students from across the country reveals that colleges and universities, including some of the most expensive and elite in the United States, are failing to add to their graduates’ understanding of America’s history and essential institutions. The study, the largest scientifically valid survey ever conducted to measure student learning of these subjects at colleges and universities, was administered by the University of Connecticut’s Department of Public Policy (UConnDPP) on behalf of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI). A nonprofit, nonpartisan, tax-exempt organization, ISI was founded in 1953 to further in successive generations of American college youth a better understanding of the economic, political, and ethical values that sustain a free and humane society.
