Initial Findings from the IEA International Civic and Citizenship Education Study

The International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS) is a project of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), an international organization which, for over 50 years, has conducted international comparative studies on educational achievement and reported on key aspects of education systems and processes.
