Timely James B. Edwards Civics Bills in Legislature

Should South Carolina's high school graduates demonstrate the same knowledge of our government as immigrants being granted citizenship? Who could disagree?

Try stopping a teenager on the street and asking those basic questions. You'll get your answer.Try it for yourself here:

Bills are now in committee in both the House and Senate of South Carolina. The civics test would not prevent graduation if failed; it would, however, reveal which classes are teaching students to understand our government. Email your representatives now.
