Weekly Poll

Tennessee House and Senate passed a bill requiring students to pass a citizenship test in order toograduate. The measure is headed to Governor Haslam for his signature. Do you believe that students should have to pass a separate test similar to those given to those applying for United States citizenship?

No. This information should already have been taught in history classes as part of the regular curriculum.

This is targeting immigrants and should not be passed. It is discrimination.

Yes. We need to make sure that our youth learn as much about American history as possible.

It doesn't matter to me.
