The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) today released results from the 2016 International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS), which reports on how well students in 24 participating countries are being prepared to undertake their role in society as responsible citizens.

The results from ICCS will support policymakers, educators and education researchers in meeting the educational needs of citizens and society.
