Spelling and Civics Don’t Seem To Suit Our Officials

civicstest

u.s. officials scored a pathetic 44% average on a civics exam created by the intercollegiate studies institute. citizens were not much better, scoring an average of 49%, according to isi major report findings. i was feeling bad about my score (81.82%) as i missed five questions due to careless reading. not that i am saying i am perfect. i legitimately answered one question incorrectly.  ; – D

the more telling tale is in the topic breakdown by score. let’s hope the incoming leaders selected by president-elect obama weren’t included in the lot.

try your hand at the quiz here.
