This study addresses three research questions: 1) what federal and state-level government policies influence civic education in Georgia and New Hampshire?, 2) what is the current state of civic health among citizens in Georgia and New Hampshire?, and 3) is there a relationship between state-level civic education policy and civic health in Georgia and New Hampshire? The scope of this study is confined to state-level civic education policy at the public, secondary level and civic health in Georgia and New Hampshire. Findings of this study reveal that although both Georgia and New Hampshire have public education systems that place very little emphasis on civic education, there are significant differences in the civic education policy of the two states in regard to the number and content of civic education standards; Georgia’s standards being more numerous, lower-level, and less concerned with matters of citizenship than New Hampshire’s. Relative to civic health, New Hampshire’s is found to be relatively much stronger than Georgia and the rest of the nation.
