Majority of Goverment Officials Fail Basic Civics, Economics Quiz

Aren't you glad you are in representative Government where the people only get minor choice every couple of years or more?

The American Civic Literacy Program has been quizzing America on basic Eivics, Economics and History. From their press release a shocking 56% of all Government Officials fail this basic quiz.

Elected officials scored even lower
than the general public with an average score of 44 percent and only 0.8 percent (or 21) of all surveyed earned an “A.”

Pretty incredible that 71.4% of all people who take this quiz fail. Even more frightening are those teaching college also fail with the average score being 55%.

You can take the 10 minute quiz here. It's scored online.
