Civics Test Legislation Has Passed in Minnesota

24 May 2016 11:21 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

With the end of the Minnesota Legislative Session comes the passage of a version of the civics test bill. You can find the language here, starting on line 444.17. 

In short, public school students must pass 30 of 50 civics test questions sometime in grade 9 or above. Schools or districts may choose to record a student's score on a transcript, but a student's score on this test is not tied to graduation. This is set to take effect in the 2017-2018 school year.
