New Tests for High School Students

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


Alabama lawmakers want to require high school students to pass a civics exam before graduating. The Alabama House of Representatives passed the bill 68-31. Decatur Republican Representative Terri Collins says her legislation is intended to ensure young people know how their government works. The exams will be introduced during the next school year and are identical to the naturalization test given by the federal government. Students can take the 100 question quiz as many times as needed in order to pass it. The measure has already passed the Senate. It now moves to Governor Kay Ivey's desk to sign into law.
