I think “College Board” could play a pivotal role in making it easier to make a better decision for president

When you are getting ready to go to college you take the SAT test.  That combined with your record in high school will tell colleges whether or not to consider you as a future student.  These tests are made to show your skill set at Math and Verbal.  I purpose that we make a mandatory test for anyone who wants to run for president.  Instead of math and verbal,  this test will test the following areas

  • Foreign Affairs
  • Economics
  • Military History
  • Law
  • Civics
  • American History
  • Current affairs
  • Constitution and All amendments

The reason that I have included College Board in the title of this article is that I can think of nobody else better suited to make and administer this test fairly for all the candidates.  These guys quantify knowledge already just instead of Math and Verbal,  they would be testing for the above knowledge.  If you are reading this article and think there is a topic that should be tested for that I haven’t mentioned, please reply with the topic you want to know the president is qualified in. I will then add it to the list.  The “College Board” will have to completely revamp the test every election.

  1. That seems way too logical to work! I can’t believe no one has thought of that already, which would lead me to belive that they have thought of it, and it has gotten swept under the proverbial rug by the powers that be.

  2. As wonderfully simple as that would be, disqualifying, I’m sure, many an idiot from even taking the notion of running for public office seriously, I feel as if the Supreme Court would render that unconstitutional. I don’t have any sources to back this up, but I think it could fall under some extension of the first amendment they rationalize. I will say, however, if this was put into effect, I wouldn’t have to worry about my biggest fear: someone from Texas being elected president.

  3. I read of the first amendment and couldn’t find a way it would apply. Is there a specific part that you think would apply? It needs to be something that voters demand or they won’t vote for you. Like the debates. The candidates don’t have to go to the debates but if they don’t go then they won’t get elected. I am hard pressed to find the problem with the first amendment which is:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

  5. Hello.This post was extremely fascinating, especially because I was searching for thoughts on this matter last Tuesday.

    • Thank you for your input. I was wondering if there are any topics that you feel the president should be tested on before election day.

  6. I have been notified and agree that it would probably be better if the college board which are the same people who make the SAT. Would be a better choice then MENSA.
