I was reading an news article from 2009. The article discussed how
"Only one in four Oklahoma public high school students can name the first President of the United States, according to a survey released today."
While I read the rest of the article I noticed you only had ten questions and get six answers correct to become a U.S. citizen.
"A thousand students were given 10 questions drawn from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services item bank. Candidates for U.S. citizenship must
answer six questions correctly in order to become citizens."
Now it's sorry to see how our children can't pass a simple citizen test.
"About 92 percent of the people who take the citizenship test pass on their first try, according to immigration service data. However, Oklahoma
students did not fare as well. Only about 3 percent of the students surveyed would have passed the citizenship test."
"Dutcher said this is not just a problem in Oklahoma. He said Arizona had similar results, which left him concerned for the entire country."
Here is the complete article.www.globalone.tv...
Now this makes me wonder why are there still so many immigrants in the U.S? This test seems so simple that it wouldn't be that difficult to study for
the citizen test.
If you could study for Citizen test. What are your thoughts on the article and about the Citizen test.
