The old 'Americans are stupid routine.' Do you really think that the average person in Greece or India or Brazil or Cameroon is a geography expert?

Americans are bad at geography in specific for how advanced of a nation they live in. Obviously, the average American is going to be better at geography than the average person from a third world country. I am American and there are definitely many intelligent people here, but focusing on geography in specific, the school system is not so great at teaching it. In my school, geography is taken in for a semester in 4th grade, a semester in 7th grade, and the whole year in 9th grade. Also, I do know that in many American schools it is gym teachers who teach geography.

It really makes me mad when people say "100% and I'm not from America." GOOD FOR YOU! I'm sure that if I tried I could get 100% on any other country, and in fact, I have! Why do non-Americans feel that need to go around bragging that they know our country? Honestly, why does it matter so much? Americans aren't stupid, in case you didn't know. So get that stupid stereotype out of your head. Please, thanks.

This WaS pretty easy to me, NY errors were just careless like clicking Denver when I meant to hit Dallas. What is scary to me is my daughter who's in 7th grade and has gotten AS and BS HER WHOLE LIFE IN SCHOOL DID HORRIBLY. They don't teach things like I used to have to learn. Anything I had to memorize...multiplication tables ,states , capitols, she he never had to learn.

When my daughter was in 7th grade, she had to make a poster glamorizing any president's famous program.

I told about a few including FDR's New Deal and LBJ's Great Society.

She worked on it for a couple of hours brought into my office and showed her wonderful poster which said

A NEW SOCIETY!

WHAT A GREAT DEAL!

The place where you have Memphis is really Blytheville, AR or Dyersburg, TN. Memphis is right next to both AR and MS, but more of the suburbs are in MS. The metro area does sprawl a bit, mostly to the South and East due to the River and nice farmland in AR.
