ONLY an eighth grade education?

Back in 1895, you were lucky if you managed to complete an eighth grade education. But, if you passed the eighth grade finals, as they are documented on this page, you knew more than graduating seniors today. I dare say that most of us with today’s graduate degrees would not do well at all if we sat down for 6 hours, which is what it takes, and gave it a try.
Heh. And imagine just how bad Dumbya would do!!
