I'd Take It

Legislators and school officials are being invited to take the UBSCT, Utah's new high school exit exam. I'd take it. I'd also be interested to see them all take it. If it is, as its proponents claim, a decent test of very basic skills that any high school graduate should have, then they should have no problem taking it; and if it is too difficult and full of esoteric specific knowledge as its detractors claim, then the massive failure rate among legislators would serve only to highlight this.
