Many Americans are frustrated with, but poorly informed about, democracy in our Republic:
More than a third can’t name any of the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment;
Only a quarter can name all three branches of government;
Many high schools teach only minimal civics and only 18% of U.S. colleges require even one class on U.S. history or government.
Most civics websites focus only on kindergarten through high school.
We aim to fill the gap. CFFAD is reaching hundreds of people daily with our short civics courses.
