    That's BS. No matter how you frame it, remaining ignorant is NEVER a good choice. Have you ever attended university? A political science class? How about Civics class in elementary, middle, or high school?

    Thank you. I remember history classes, but not civics. Maybe they were combined. I wish today I would have taken a political science class in college.

    Interesting Venkatachari. I looked about on the net for civics classes worldwide. I couldn't find anything. But, I learned some nations it is within a social studies class that is required. Maybe that is here too.

    Maybe they do teach it today KJ. I really don't know. I have a hunch maybe more will participate of least by voting realizing the importance.

    National test maybe is the wrong word. A standardize test? Maybe they are the same. I was thinking about the test to become a citizen and wondered our education system.
