    75 Percent of Oklahoma High School Students Can't Name the First President of the U.S.

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Only one in four public high school students can name the first President of the United States, according to a survey released today.

    The survey was commissioned by the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs in observance of Constitution Day on Thursday.

    The Oklahoma City-based think tank enlisted national research firm, Strategic Vision, to access students' basic civic knowledge.

    Students were given 10 questions drawn from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services item bank. Candidates for U.S. citizenship must answer six questions correctly in order to become citizens.

    About 92 percent of the people who take the citizenship test pass on their first try, according to immigration service data.

    However, Oklahoma students did not fare as well. Only about 3 percent of the students surveyed would have passed the citizenship test.
