Earlier this month, the Alliance for Excellent Education held “The Nation’s Report Cards for U.S. History and Civics,” a webinar that focused on student performance in those two subjects.
It featured Dr. Jack Buckley, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, Kelly Kovacic, California’s 2010 Teacher of the Year and an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. history and AP U.S. government teacher at the Preuss School, a public charter school in San Diego, Dr. Cornelia Orr, executive director of NAGB, and Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia.
