Pennsylvania bill requiring civics education passes Senate panelBreaking News
The Senate Education Committee has moved legislation that would require Pennsylvania’s high school students to have a basic understanding of American history and government.
Senate Bill 723 calls for students to take a test identical to the civics portion of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ naturalization test, the exam all immigrants must pass when applying for U.S. citizenship.
The bill was amended in committee and would no longer require students pass the test as a graduation requirement.
