Civics Test

November 26, 2008

Yahoo! News is reporting the results of a simple literacy test given to US government officials.  The results are dismal.  Elected government officials scored just 44% on average on the test which asks questions about history, economics, and civics.

You can take the test yourself.  I scored 27 out of 33 for 81.82%.
