    Apparently, our kids aren't doing so well on this...

    how 'bout us?

    Civic Literacy Report - Civics Quiz

    I think quite a few of the questions are clearly skewed right and the answer depends on one's political pov. But it's an interesting quiz.

    It does tend to go beyond pure civics and into right wing economics

    Whether the winger considers it 'right wing' or not is irrelevant... the questions were indeed based on truth

    I completed the quiz... pretty simple... but the site may be getting hammered for whatever reason.. as it hangs for me before the results... go figure.. LOL

    Not sure how you find that a right leaning quiz. Democratic economic policies, civil rights questions, separation of church and state and the like. This thing is a lefty primer.

    31 of 33. Yes, it leans to the conservative right in economics, but so what. It's a good quiz.

    "Right wing economics"??
    You probably think that gravity is a theory in right wing physics.

    32 out of 33.
