Rights and responsibilities. That's what it means to be an American citizen. In the May issue, we explore how the protections that U.S. citizens enjoy come with conditions. We've got articles on the evolution of our voting public (we didn't always all have that right!), why we pay taxes, and what jury duty entails. Many people born outside this country dream of becoming U.S. citizens, and they work hard to achieve that goal. We've got that process covered, too. Wondering if you could pass a citizenship test? Take our brief sample quiz. Plus, meet some interesting kids who have made practicing good citizenship a priority in their lives.
