Anyone Can Blog ~ Commenting Is Hard
Back 100 years ago.
Read it and weep:
I doubt I could get a passing grade on this test.
Thanks to the internet I don’t need to know the answers.
I’m retired too, but if 75% or more still passes. I’m fine. Interesting to note that half the History section is useless minutia, even for students of that time, unless it’s a course in Great Battles of North America. Not a single question anywhere on the test about either the Declaration of Independence or any of the causes of the American Revolution?
We learned all this material (with less emphasis on the War of 1812, and “Servia” didn’t exist) back in the 1950s and 60s, and we got Art, Music, Sex Education (called “health” at the time) and foreign languages (elective in grades 5-8) on top of it. Of course kids must also know computing, mass media and have some kind of multicultural sensitivity training to navigate today’s world.
Thanks for the answers, DBS.
I’ll take the test and let y’all know how I did.

Here’s one for you. Without asking Mr. Google , who was Ora L. Roby?
In the Spelling section, what’s an “eneeayor?”
Before I Gog it, I’m guessing Ora L. Roby had something to do with Idaho because there are a few things named ‘Roby’ here in teh spud state.
