"To prevent chaos on America’s streets, the law requires every driver to know the rules of the road before hitting the highway. When the stakes are high, testing for competency is essential. Yet, when it comes to voting, we let everyone participate once they turn 18. We’ve always trusted history teachers to provide a fundamental understanding of government, but it’s not working."
