Take This 101 Year Old Test for 8th Graders and See How You Do


Pop quiz: Are you smarter than an eighth grader in 1912?

Lew Rockwell got ahold of this test for the Bullitt County school system in Kentucky. I performed poorly, but to be fair/excuse my stupidity, some of the answers, especially history, are very different now that we know more of the truth. THAT SAID, I still didn’t know them. I just know they’re different than what the answers the test was most likely looking for. Or maybe this was a very progressive school system for 1912 Kentucky? (???)

Your turn!

[Lew Rockwell]
