A new bill introduced would require every Texas Public School student to take a civics test in order to graduate high school.
Republican Representative Trent Ashby filed House Bill 1244, which includes a civics test in the graduation requirements for public high school students.
The civics test would consist of all of the questions on the test administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services [USCIS] as part of the naturalization process.
The questions would be presented in a multiple-choice format and students would have to score 70 or higher in order to pass the exam.
It would take effect beginning with students who enter 9th grade during the 2020-2021 school year.
