My son sent me these links after he read my recent post, “Civics Now.”
This is at American University, a major pipeline for students seeking political careers.
Their ignorance is capped by showing that, while none of the students could correctly answer any of the questions about government, every single one knew the name of a song from a Disney movie targeted at elementary school-aged girls.
Okay, civics is isn’t taught anymore, and who pays attention to the US Congress anyway? This is a video from from last summer, in which interviewer Mark Dice asks people in two different cities about the history of Independence Day.
Okay, okay. Maybe all those history questions were too hard. How about some basic math?
And I was wondering why more people don’t read this blog!
