Event Description

Dr. Torney-Purta has conducted psychological research for nearly forty years on young people's knowledge of democracy and the social and political attitudes necessary to maintain it. The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) recognized her leadership in this field when it appointed Dr. Torney-Purta as the International Chair of the Steering Committee for their landmark IEA Civic Education Study. Over a ten-year period with colleagues from over thirty countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, Dr. Torney-Purta led a study that is the most rigorous ever conducted of how young people are prepared for their roles as citizens in democracies and societies aspiring to democracy.
