Did you know many high school graduates don’t know who George Washington is? I know, shocking! Well, there’s a proposal in North Dakota to force high school seniors to take a ten question oral exam, similar to the one applicants to become US citizens have to take. They’ll only have to get six of the questions right, so unless five of the questions are about George Washington (as they obviously should be) they’ll still not have to know who Washington was.
The AP reports that “similar efforts also are underway in South Dakota, Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Utah…”
Could Georgia be next in the chute?
The effort is being pushed by the Joe Foss Institute out of Arizona, who has given honorary awards to Sammy Davis, Jr. and Jay Leno, so you know they’re a serious outfit.
So which Georgia legislator will be the first to take the bait and pre-file the above bill? We’ll take your bets below, the winner getting the bill that Washington is actually on.
