Make The US Citizenship Test A High School Graduation Requirement
Shiva Bhaskar

Here in Europe, I’ll be taking the same kind of test to get my new (double) citizenship as well. I looked at the practice test and tried it out on my local friends who are citizens from birth. Pretty much the same results. The average voter in a democratic country has no basic understanding of how the government actually works.

PS — Here there is one more citizenship requirement, which is passing a test on the official language. America doesn’t have one, hence the omission.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
