Students at elite universities know even less about American history and government when they graduate than when they enroll.
The NY Sun reports ( http://www.nysun.com/article/62901 ):
[i]At universities such as Princeton, Yale, Cornell, Duke, and Berkeley, seniors scored lower on the test than freshmen, living proof of the broadening relevancy of the old Harvard adage that the university is a storehouse of knowledge because "the freshmen bring so much and the seniors take away so little."[/i]
Here's the test:
I missed three (got 95% correct) - I refuse to identify which ones because at least one was embarrassing. But then again, I didn't get the benefit of a Yale education...
The average score is a 73.6%.
See how you do.
