Abstract: This paper, drawn from a book in progress, summarizes evidence of a civic achievement gap between non-white, poor, and/or immigrant youth, on the one hand, and white, wealthier, and/or native-born youth, on the other. Young people (and adults) in the former group demonstrate consistently lower levels of civic and political knowledge, skills,
positive attitudes, and participation, as compared to their wealthier and white counterparts. As a result, they face serious political disadvantages.
