Restoring America’s Legacy

September 2002 by Anne D. Neal by Jerry L. Martin

This eye-opening report reveals that despite growing public alarm about historical illiteracy and a Congressional Resolution calling for action, not a single one of America's top 50 colleges and universities now requires the study of American history of its graduates. And in a continuing decline, only 10% of these same colleges require any study of history at all, a drop from 22% just two years prior. President Bush cited information in the report when he announced his national history and civics initiative in the Rose Garden on Constitution Day, September 17, 2002.
