As the Washington Examiner reported:

“Less than one-in-five eighth graders have a proficient grasp of United States history, and less than a quarter have a proficient grasp of civics, according to new government data released Wednesday.”

“Overall, the average scores for eighth-graders are not significantly better or worse than they were in 2010, the last time the National Assessment of Educational Progress examined eighth-graders’ knowledge of geography, civics, and U.S. history.”
