Political ignorance breeds political impotence. Americans don’t know how their government works because our schools refuse to teach it properly. They don’t want you to know that YOU have the power to influence your government.

You can learn most of it by reading the U.S. Constitution – all of the words, carefully, thoughtfully, and repeatedly, over time – and comparing it to contemporary news reports. You can learn most of the rest by reading Community Matters articles.
The first CM quiz focused on general knowledge. This advanced quiz requires thoughtful responses.
Please think about these questions before you read the answers.
