To pass the United States citizenship test before they graduate.( obviously not to become citizens).
I find it really sad that people who are trying to become citizens know more about this country than the majority of people who live here. We want intelligent, aware people running this country, yet we are not providing kids with the information they need.
Informed voters are the minority.

Could YOU pass the citizenship test? I know there was a time I couldn't have.

I agree with you.  What's even scarier is those without the knowledge have a vote just like the rest of us.

And yes, I could pass.  So could my husband.  We've taken the "test" on websites.

As a "brain exercise", I will sometimes grab a sheet of paper and write all 50 states, then their Capitols.
I always end up forgetting at least 1.

I've been out of school for 20 years, but it still annoys me that I keep leaving one out, and it's never the same one...

 Lol, I do the same thing but I've been out of school a lot longer than that.  And I always forget Florida's capital, yes, I know it, but when I'm writing them down, I just plain forget.
