Your Turn

Twenty percent of US students can't identify the US on a world map. What are your thoughts on the subject?

I think that we, as Americans, that don't have maps, like such as Iraq who doesn't know where South Africa is, such as, you know, but Americans should know, but they don't know Iraq either and maybe like such as if we had more maps, like if Unified had maps like for Tom Hicks so he could find Michigan like such as staying in Michigan forever and ever...you get the drift!! ;^)

I'd say it's the lack of education or interest regarding other countries, which is so wrong. Many Americans don't care about anything outside of America. How much international news do you see in the Journal Times?

I just saw the video of this embarrassment...apparently everyone is talking/laughing about it. What cave was I in? Oh wait, I forgot that I'm blond... I meant, what planet was I on? :)

kat, don't like worry. People in Iraq and such like America don't have computers to help the children of South Africa find as such beauty contestants like make fools of themselves, for the children. Denis Navratil.

Anonymous, I agree with you that many Americans don't care about anything outside of America, but apparently 20% of Americans don't even know where America is...

That's because many Americans just don't care what the relationship is between America and other countries. America is all that matters to them, why should they know where it is on a world map?
