Editorial Reviews


"How to educate democratic citizens is one of the most important problems in today’s schools. Making Civics Count: Citizenship Education for a New Generation, edited by David E. Campbell, Meira Levinson, and Frederick M. Hess (2012) is an excellent collection of essays, written by some of the most prominent scholars in the field, that enriches our understanding of this problem and how to tackle it." — Judith L. Pace, Democracy & Education

"Making Civics Count: Citizenship Education for a New Generation is a well-edited collection of chapters from leading and innovative scholars in the fields of political science, education, and public policy. This volume charts a clear path for meaningful reform at a time when American civil society needs it most." — Jessica Feezell, Journal of Political Science Education

From the Back Cover

“By nearly every measure, Americans are less engaged in their communities and political activity than generations past.” So write the editors of this volume, who survey the current practices and history of citizenship education in the United States. They argue that the current period of “creative destruction”—when schools are closing and opening in response to reform mandates—is an ideal time to take an in-depth look at how successful strategies and programs promote civic education and good citizenship.

Making Civics Count offers research-based insights into what diverse students and teachers know and do as civic actors, and proposes a blueprint for civic education for a new generation that is both practical and visionary.

“This collection of state-of-the-art essays advances the discussion of civics from noble aspiration to empirical evidence and pedagogical practice. The authors, all noted scholars, have shown us how to improve civic education and—in the process—how to strengthen our democracy. It’s time for policymakers to pay attention.” — William A. Galston, Ezra Zilkha Chair in Governance Studies, The Brookings Institution

Making Civics Count models a brilliant alternative to the ideological polarization and paralysis that dominates civic education discourse. Campbell, Levinson, Hess, and the other contributors to this volume hail from across the political spectrum but share a critical commitment to reinvigorate dialogue around civic education. They seek not consensus but spirited engagement—with ideas, with solid empirical data, and with visions for a more robust democracy. This is an important book for scholars, policymakers, and anyone interested in civic education’s future.” — Joel Westheimer, university research chair, sociology of education, University of Ottawa

“This compelling and persuasive book shows that an open climate for discussion of current issues, teachers’ preparation across subject areas, and the new digital media can help foster a vision of democracy and counter prevailing inequality.” — Judith Torney-Purta, professor of human development, University of Maryland

David E. Campbell is professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame and founding director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy. Meira Levinson is an associate professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Frederick M. Hess is resident scholar and director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute.
