In February 2011 Newsweek Magazine gave 1,000 Americans the United States Citizenship Test and 38% failed.
That was the catalyst for Star Group International to publish “Citizenship: What Every American Needs to Know.” Denise Merrill, Secretary of State commented on the book saying “What a timely piece! Just what we in several of my new task forces and working groups have been looking for to accomplish one of the chief goals of my new administration - to enhance and encourage civic education in . There is indeed a crisis in civics…” The Executive Director of the National Conference on Citizenship, David B. Smith stated that “CITIZENSHIP encourages readers to learn about and participate in civic life. It simultaneously educates and inspires, eloquently urging every American to partake in a more active citizenry.”
