I knew education in public schools was....flawed, lets say, but this video makes me wonder where the heck my tax money is going.
I know 5th graders that can answer these questions better than the High schoolers in this video. 53 states, Utopia is a country ? Can't name the vice prez ? Civil war is when we won our freedom ? History teachers should be shot. A young mind is like a sponge, this only tells me no importance on these matters is being taught, drilled in.
Betcha if you asked them about facebook, twitter, or the Kardashians, they could spit out facts like crazy.
Watch the video, try not to laugh and cry at the same time.
