Challenge 2026

Citizenship First has issued a Challenge 2026 — namely, that by the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and our nation’s founding, every high school graduate should be able to pass the U.S. citizenship exam. That is the same test of the basics of civics and history that 97 percent of naturalized citizens currently take and pass, but which most U.S. high school students have flunked in research samplings. Leading thinkers such as Walter Isaacson of the Aspen Institute, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson and Wendy Kopp of Teach For America have already signed on.
