New SAT To Include Reading Passages from “Founding Documents”

March 5th, 2014

The College Board will be revising the SAT, and (!) include reading passages from our founding documents.

Every exam will include a reading passage from either one of the nation’s “founding documents,” such as the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, or from one of the important discussions of such texts, such as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

I support this change, wholeheartedly! Let’s hope they can tell the Declaration and Constitution apart.
