Could You Pass U.S. Citizenship Civics Test?

Could You Pass U.S. Citizenship Civics Test?
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Troy Singleton has served as a New Jersey Assemblyman representing the 7th Legislative District since 2011.

The Burlington lawmaker thinks high school seniors need a refresher in their civics classes, and plans to do something about it.

NJ.com reports that Singleton is looking to pass legislation that would require high school seniors to pass the same civics test taken by those who apply for U. S. citizenship in order to graduate.

That civics test involves ten questions. Singleton wrote on Facebook, “Every single student in NJ and across the United States of America should have basic knowledge and understanding of American government. Civics is just common sense.”
