This is near and dear to my heart. The NY Times this morning has an article about students and their knowledge of history. I'd love to see the test. Thomas Jefferson would be rolling in his grave, as he believed that an educated public is the key to a successful democracy. I'm not one to believe that our students need to memorize a huge number of facts and dates, but we should get the main events. See the article at http://nyti.ms/kJ42fs.
