In the trivia section, a fun little quiz my sister forwarded to me- the Intercollegiate Studies Institute Civic Literacy Exam. It’s sorta like a 33 question multiple choice AP US History test, except in the end you get to see % of citizens that got each question right as well as % of politicians that got it right.
I’ll be honest with my score- I got a 29 out of 33, good for an 88%. Missed questions on:
-Roosevelt’s response to the Supreme Court ruling on the New Deal
-the issue of the Lincoln-Douglas debates
-the quote “of the people, by the people, for the people.”
The lawyers among you may scoff that I missed these questions, but in my defense I did get a perfect on the macroeconomic questions. So at least I learned something in school…but seriously, take this test, it’s kinda fun.
