Thread: Americans fail Civics

  1. #1
    Yes, according to a new study, Americans, including elected officials, fail civics. And we wonder why we are in a recession right now.

    New Study Finds Americans, Including Elected Officials, Earn a Failing Grade When Tested on American History and Economics

    So, I ask, take the quiz here.

    I got 29 out of 33 correctly — 87.88 %

    Missed these:
    Question #4 - B. Would slavery be allowed to expand to new territories?
    Question #10 - C. Religion
    Question #17 - D. manmade satellite
    Question #33 - D. tax per person equals government spending per person

    The link shows how citizens and 164 elected officials fared in the quiz. Some are quite amazing that our elected officials generally fared worse than citizens.

    Question #7 - D. Gettysburg Address
    Question #10 - C. Religion
    Question #14 - B. stressed the sinfulness of all humanity
    Question #15 - E. Thomas Jefferson’s letters
    Question #29 - B. a resident can benefit from it without directly paying for it
    Question #33 - D. tax per person equals government spending per person

    If I had spent a bit more time I should have got 29 and 33 right.

    The others I would have only got correct by guessing as I am not American and have never studied American Civics.

    So do I get a pass? What is the pass mark?
