8th Grade Test - Can You Pass?

8th Grade Final Exam - 1895

Over the next couple of days, I will introduce ancestors who taught school with an eight grade education. I first saw this test on the Afrigeneas web site, introduced by Art Thomas. Amazed at what someone had to know before they could successfully pass the eight grade. Can you pass it? I couldn't.

  1. Well, the answer is no, I cannot pass this test; but why? Am I not as intelligent as my great grandfather? I think it has to do with the fact that there is so much more to learn, and it's easier than ever to get information, but it's also harder to focus due to the enormous increase in distractions--like this computer we are both on.
