Civics test fails civics test

In the last state budget, with no pubic input, legislators slipped in a requirement that all Wisconsin high school students must pass a civics test to graduate. Tony Castaneda talks with Tim Slekar of the BustED Pencils blog and Dean of Education at Edgewood College, about the racist underpinnings of this apparently all-American requirement. They discuss how the requirement robs resources from ethnic and multicultural studies, which have been shown to increase the engagement and success of all students.
