    I really really find this hard to believe. They do most of these surveys in the stupid parts of the United States to make us all look bad.

    I don't know if this statistic is true, but even ONE that cannot is ridiculous. The education system in this country needs a major overhaul. Here in CA they have this STAR testing nonsense, and I bet World History/Geography are not a big part of it, if at all, so they don't cover it well. But then, the politicians don't like educated masses, too hard to fool.

    Well, I think more U.S. Americans need maps. Along with people in Africa and Iraq, because maps are important in helping us find places on maps.
