      Just over half (56 percent) of Americans agree strongly with the statement that “the humanities should be an important part of every American’s education,” while 38 percent “somewhat agreed” with the statement, according to a new survey of 5, American adults from the Humanities Indicators Project of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

This study provides evidence of a cultural divide, and reports that extreme political attitudes represent a significant minority of attitudes in the United.
