We ask that those running for office, as a requirement to file as a candidate, provide the Secretary of State a certificate showing that they have passed, in the previous six months, a high school level standard test of U.S. HIstory and Civics
Why is this important?
I'm distressed at the fact that many running for public office say things that could easily be debunked by any person who can remember what s/he learned in high school U. S. History and Civics classes. To protect us from this kind of ignorance, we need to ask states to make it a requirement that any person running for public office must pass a standard high school lvel U. S. History and Civics test.
