What do you think about one in 10 teen-agers not knowing that George Washington was our first president?
“I think it’s scary. It tells me that our schools aren’t accomplishing much.”
“I really wasn’t surprised, because I’ve heard that before. It’s a large reflection of the kind of education we’re getting.”
“I think that’s pathetic.”
“I think that’s sad, but it doesn’t seem right. I bet more than one in 10 know that, but on some tests kids just don’t care what they answer.”
