Hat tip to fellow history blogger and publisher Ted Savas for suggesting this Civics Quiz. I missed 2, #'s 27 & 33. I could still make my argument for my answers, though. ;o)
My score was 93.94% - not too shabby though Ted only missed one. I'll take a B on a test I didn't study for and rushed through!
Anyway, I did beat the national average which is 74.8% - and I never finished college. I only bring that up due to the lack of knowledge about civics and history I find among college graduates. The summary and findings are quite interesting and point this fact out. Is it safe to say that academia and our nation's educational system are failing itheir "customers?" I think so.
Ok class, close your books, put your notes away and take the quiz. Please report back with your scores. This is on the honor system, no looking at your classmate's paper.
