In Kentucky, an 8th grade exam from 1912 was donated to the Bullitt County History Museum. The questions feature the fundamental foundation of education that we seem to have lost due to the dumbing down of the American Education System. This is a direct result of the Federal Department Of Educations involvement in your local education.

Now with the new standardization such as the “Common Core” epidemic  we can look forward to even easier tests that do not challenge our youth. This is a type of conditioning so that our youth cannot compete with the elite. The elite think in terms of dynasties most people live day-to-day and paycheck to paycheck. We discussed UN Agenda 21 and Common Core this with Rosa Koire on Friday. | Listen Here |

    OK-which of these questions has relevance to living our lives? It could be looked at as a memory test, then the subject matter immediately forgotten (except for what is actually useful). Like many of the tests I had to suffer through growing up.
