Feedback at 5:00: Civics Test

A new law in Arizona is creating a divide between teachers and some lawmakers.

Starting in 2017, high school seniors must pass the U.S. citizenship test to get their diplomas. It’s aimed at having students prove they know American history and government.

Students will have to answer 60 out of the 100 questions correctly.  If they fail, they can retake the test until they pass.

Some teachers say it’s redundant. But others say students — because they are already citizens of the U.S. — should be able to pass the test.

And now a group is pushing to have the test required in all 50 states.
