World Geography

There’s no denying that the majority of Americans aren’t very good in Geography or World History, but do you know why? I’ve always wondered this myself, and now thanks to Miss Teen South Carolina, I finally understand:

Who would have thought South Africa plays such a vital role in our children’s Geography skills? With such a vividly concise and globally significant theory, I envision a Nobel Peace Prize in her future.

    “Thank you, South Carolina.”

    Thank you, Miss South Carolina, *indeed*! Well I think her answer actually says more than you would think at first. It clearly shows the poor state of SC education, right?

    P.S. – I’m from the upside of Ess Sea, yo, so I can sez wut I wants.

    Were you expecting more out of the fine state of South Carolina? It would have been more interesting if the pageant had shown Miss SC a map and asked her to identify the US, or South Africa or Asia. I would bet you my savings she couldn’t do it.

    “… and what is the capitol of South Carolina?”

    Oh, so THAT’S why. It totally makes sense now.

    Wow, the problem is no maps or is it that our school children are focused on charity to the exclusion of geography or are they confused about which is which or did Miss SC not understand the question?

    Huh? Did her answer even have anything to do with the US?

    It’s as if right before she went out her mom looked her in the eyes and said “Now honey, make sure you talk bout South Africa and Iraq… that will show them judges how smart you be.”

    Did you know that 90% of American Students can’t locate a map on a wall?

    She looks like Brian’s stupid girlfriend from Family Guy.

    If that is what amrican schools are turning out no wonder we are having problems. We need to keep kids in school longer and ensure they pass classes to graduate.
    What about parents ensuring their kids learn and helping them to learn by testing knowledge at home.
