The American Civics test is an examination that all immigrants must pass to gain U.S. citizenship. The test asks 10 randomly selected questions which cover U.S. history, the constitution and government. In 2015 Arizona became the first state to require High School students to pass the test before they graduate.
government yes, for their own benefit and history and language advised but imagine going to another country and learning their whole government, and then having to learn their history and language as a requirement. if their language barrier isn't getting in the way it should be their choice, and history shouldn't be required because if they know the gov. that's all that matters that's what the history lead up to.
Yes, as it is necessary for them to understand the workings of our government and their rights as a citizen. However, it should only cover topics taught in public schools that most of the population would and should know.
I listened to the expectation for people working to become citizens in our country and it was laughable. I am born and raised, 40
years old and I couldn’t answer even half of those questions correctly and I wouldn’t be expected to because I was born here so I guess automatically superior. What a joke.
Yes, I strongly believe so. I don't believe anyone should be forced to speak English, but I also believe that if someone is to become a citizen in the United States, they should learn the history of our government and how it works, as well as the nation's language, or at least the basics of our language. If future citizens are to become that, a citizen, they must be educated on government to preserve democracy and ensure that their vote goes towards the president they believe to have the best policies during presidential elections.
Make it risk reward: Let them choose if they want to take it. If they do and pass, they will gain additional benefits and the process will be easier, if they fail the process of becoming a citizen will be more difficult.
