This below website offers a test of Civic Literacy. The website reports that college educators average about 55%. The average citizen averages about 49%.
A friend sent me this test. Having nothing else to do, I gave it a whirl. Noting that "college educators" average about 55%, I was expecting a challenge. Having been out of school for over forty years and out of the country for over thirty, I was not hopeful of competing with such an august group.
I scored 79%!
See if anyone can beat that...
(I wonder how Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, and the assorted cast of presidential "hopefuls" would do on this test.)
