The time spent on social studies in U.S. classrooms has been cut in favor of standardized testing and a stronger push for math and science, causing some experts to warn of a "civic achievement gap." A Carnegie Corporation of New York study found that students with a strong background in social studies more likely were to vote, volunteer and work on community issues, and show more confidence in speaking with their elected representatives.
Is there a "civic achievement gap" because of reduced social studies time?
