Civics test grad requirement starts this year

A state law requiring Kentucky high school students to pass a civics test in order to graduate goes into effect this year.

High schools in Northeast Kentucky are not waiting until the last minute and many already have administered the test.

Some schools are making the test part of social studies at the freshman or sophomore level so that most if not all students will have a passing grade socked away long before their senior year.

The General Assembly passed the law in 2017. It requires students to pass a 100-question test prepared or approved by the local board of education. Questions must be taken from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services test the test required to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.

3. Good that they are taking the questions from the citizenship test.

I was a bit afraid some committee would be making up its own test, and who knows what that would look like.
