On January 10 the National Association of Scholars published a report alleging that American universities are teaching civics in such a way as to undermine American civilization.

On January 17 Stanley Fish responded in the Chronicle of Higher Education, arguing that “Citizen Formation is Not Our Job.”

On January 24 Harriet Boyte, whom the original report criticized, also responded in Education Week with an article entitled “Does Civics Belong in the Classroom?” David Randall and Deborah Meier have also joined that conversation. (You’ll need to register to read the exchange).
