This copy of the Eighth Grade Exam for Bullitt County Schools in 1912 was donated to the museum. We thought you might like to see what the test looked like a hundred years ago. Obviously it tested some things that were more relevant at that time than now, and it should not be used to compare student knowledge then and now.
Because that would just highlight how much our elementary education system SUCKS compared to what it was 100 years ago, despite the fact that we have computers and all sorts of wonderful toys and are spending more per pupil than we ever have.
