Students and American Civics

Story about a very interesting study about the state of civics and government education in American universities. A short multiple choice 8-question quiz was administered to college freshmen and seniors. The results were surprisingly poor. Take the quiz here.

I only scored 6/8, although I second-guessed myself into getting 1 more wrong than I should have. So, no holier-than-thou from me, because I didn't do well . . . and I'm a poli sci major who's taken a few American government-oriented electives at Columbia.

Tip from Sarah at Trying to Grok.
