I was reading a book and at one time, reading the Story of the Constitution, by Sol Bloom, was required for imigrants seeking citizenship in the US.

I think it's a big mistake to cut corners and expect less of people who want to join our melting pot. It's always been a goal of immigrants to assimilate and become an American, learn the language and live the American dream. The fewer common beliefs, knowledge, and interests - the greater the divides. I should probably label this IMO - although supporting might be easy as one only needs to point to the disconnect in Europe.
