If you can’t pass this test, thank a Liberal
Look at this Eighth Grade exam from 1912, it is well beyond the capacity of any eighth grade student in America today and it’s doubtful that even a high school senior or a student halfway through college could ace this test. Just try answering a few of these questions yourself without going to Google for the answers. You can’t do it.
Yet, this was just a standard, average test in 1912 of an eighth-grader’s knowledge. Go ask your eighth grader to take this test with you. And just for fun, look close at question #7 in the Grammar section. This was a public school test.
