Default Can you pass a US Citizenship Test?

I got 46/50 correct. I don't consider myself "book smart". Try for yourself. I seriously doubt this is a test accurate to the real one but it's fun.

Took it the other day and scored a 44. If this is the real citizenship test....well....I don't know what to say. Guarantee you half the people born here couldn't answer a lot of those questions.

49, somehow missed the one about who the senators represent. I guess that law degree is worth something after all...

50/50

I knew the makers of the test still considered the economy to be capitalist when the "fundamental transformation" has turned the corner to socialism.

I recommend sharing this test with your children. It might make for some interesting and educational conversation. Don't trust the schools to teach this stuff.

citizenship test ????

it should be a required graduation test, if you don't get 50 out of 50 you go back to learnin for another year and while they are at it, it would be a good idea to make it a required test before a teacher can get or keep their job.

Good point Keaker.

Another class that should be mandatory for all high school graduates is a finance class.
Unlike geometry or trig EVERYONE will have to manage their finances in the real world!

A lot of people graduate high school and get a job making great money yet have no clue how to manage their money.

With all of the BS classes offered in high school I never understood why they don't offer a class that teaches you how to balance a check book, save for retirement, and make a budget for a household.

I graduated in engineering and even that degree only forced me to take one finance class which was focused on finances for a business not on a personal level. Since graduating I have taken finance courses offered by my employer which has helped but I still feel that I am undereducated in this subject.
