Sad.

 

We could do this in the 6th grade in the '50s-60s (with the then country borders and names), EASILY. We were even better in the 1870-1900s. Take a look at the examples of 8th grade tests in that era - our college grads could not remotely pass now.

 

And the really sad thing is that with modern technology, transportation, trade, world politics, etc, our world is such a smaller place that is so much MORE important to know these things.....

 

Sad that we have lost our way in education.

 

Back to basics!
