Fred Block started this petition to United States Department of Education and

The current election has shown that many Americans (including some elected officials) have no idea how our government works.  I am proposing that every high school curriculum include at minimum the test and study materials given to new United States citizens.  I believe passing the citizenship test should be a graduation requirement.  Students educated in our country should know as much or more than what is required of new citizens.  Our schools should prepare students to be informed and engaged citizens.

Schools can choose to copy the available materials given to those applying for citizenship or they can go further in developing their own courses.  Civic education will help to provide a less contentious future for all Americans.
