Well if they would quit giving standardized tests all the time, teaching a socialist agenda and telling students WHAT to think instead of teaching them HOW to think and got down to actually teaching history and govt., English, math and science it might be a different story!

It was like that when my Aunt took her citizenship test in the early 70's. She had to know more about this country than I had to learn about in school.
