Like Elementary school- sure reading,writing, basic math(+-/*), state capitals, american history, basic stuff.....I think everyone remembers most of it
but most of highschool and college....could you still pass the exact same test you passed 5-10 years ago?
Example from a Virginia Highschool System: LINK
Please don't use process of elimination >25% chance, but you must know the answer without choice.

What's the point of teaching everybody things that no one will remember?
How much dumber is your average 35 year old from your average 18 year old?...if you were to give them then same test on subjects that they both have studied?
If this is the case, WTF is education other than just busy work with hardly any longterm benefit?
