The Manhattan Institute and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History convened a panel earlier this month to address declines in American students’ knowledge of history and civics and to consider these questions:

What are the causes of this decline in civic knowledge? How can they be rectified? What role can the new Common Core State Standards play?

Discussants included:

Tim Bailey, Director, Teaching Literacy Through History Program, Gilder Lehrman Institute
Lynne Munson, President & Executive Director, Common Core
Robert Pondiscio, Executive Director, CitizenshipFirst, an initiative of Democracy Prep
Juan Rangel, Chief Executive Officer, United Neighborhood Organization
Stefanie Sanford, Chief of Global Policy & Advocacy, The College Board
