Well, National Geographic Would be Upset About This

According to National Geographic, 63% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 cannot find Iraq on a map. I find this very shocking. We asked our students to find Iraq on a map for our exam last week and 90% of them couldn't do it. Apparently, National Geographic polled the gifted class. The poll also "showed that many of those questioned were not bothered by their lack of geographic knowledge."

Well, that was pretty much the same for us.
