Gee, I'm a good American, I got 27 right, missed the one on how many presidents have been impeached, the term of a representative and the first vice president. I guessed on a couple, got lucky with my guess.

Under the "Dumbing Down of America", my wife's 16 year old high school junior, and "Honor's Student", took the test a few minutes ago at my request. She got 19 right!!!! She thought we declared our independence in 1776 from Germany and her logic was that we had fought two world wars with them.

Ask you kids or grandchildren to take the test. I would bet you will be as surprised and depressed as I am.

To be quite honest and with an attempt at no disrespect, I think the US educational system is very weak on world geography & history. At least that is the impression I have gotten when discussing issues with Americans. For a country that is at the forefront of things like space exploration & technology, the educational system seems to place little value on learning about the rest of the world. If we don't understand history how can we learn its lessons and if we don't understand what is happening elsewhere how can we make informed decisions on how to react to it? I am not so sure the current educational system here is any better, by the way.

The primary problem with our public school system is its shifted away from teaching education, vs teaching agendas and lifestyles.

I managed 25
I too have noticed that Americans have little knowledge of other countries
They know more about Japan than Canada are impressed to learn that Canada is the US's largest trading partner and that the trade between the US and Canada is the largest in the world at 1 Billion a day
Not sure why schools don't teach broader subjects here.
Great country tho

This is one subject that you and I agree on, I am sure that makes this date, more or less, a red letter day for you. I am completely and totally ashamed of the the current school system. The educational system in this country has completely lost track of the basics, science, history, math, English and the others have take a back seat to "touchy feely" crap that is of no use to anyone. An average American kid does not stand a chance against a kid from China or Japan on math or science. I know that the educational system, especially here in South Texas and other border states, are hindered by a classroom full of kid that have only a basic understanding of English, how can anyone expect them to grasp concepts when they don't understand the language they are being taught under. And the teacher has to spend more of his or her time with these kids, and that takes away time for the brighter children. I have seen, and unfortunately know, kids that have have graduated form high school with "honors" who would be considered second rate 20 or 30 years ago. Some of these kids can not even read at a 6th grade level, but they are "honor" students! Sure makes you wonder how the non-honor group is doing.

In my opinion, it's very weak on US geography and history. If we can't do that well (or at all) why even bother with international topics... :trink08:

:trink08: this really frustrates my wife (middle school math teacher). Due to the 'No Child Left Behind" policy of our present administration it doesn't matter if the child fails a class or two or all they are 'passed' to the next grade where they will be even more of a burden on the teacher as they haven't learned any of the previous basics....... let alone speak English

My Mother taught school for 40 years. She taught in schools from single room to two room schools as well as multi room schools. My sister teaches school and has a Docotrate in Educational Phsycology. Here's thier rundown on the school situation:

1 = class sizes way to big = 20 students per class maximum;

2 = schools to large, to many children = problems ie: bullying, shootings, etc;

3 = not enough teacher student one on one quality time = weaker sturdents slipping through the cracks;

4 = to many extra curicular activities;

5 = teachers work load to heavy in large classes of 35 students = stress = sicktime, etc.

These are but a few of the problems here in our Canadian system. Larry, you see it's not only the US education system that needs tuning up but ours does as well right here at home. None of us here in Canada can criticise other countries educational challenges!! What worries me is that these same students that can read or do math at a grade 6 level are given honour pass grad cerificates from HS and go on to college and these same students will be teachers themselves someday. What other choice is there?? None...............................Steve...
