The State of the Nation's School System: What do you think?

A conservative public policy research group commissioned a survey to determine Oklahoma public high school students' knowledge of U.S. history and government. 1,000 students were asked ten questions taken from the U.S. citizenship test.

Only one in four students could name the first President of the United States. You can see the rest of the results here.
