Young Americans Still Lack Basic Global Knowledge


The National Geographic made a survey about how much young Americans know about outside the U.S. generally, and it turned out that six of 10 young Americans between the ages of 16-24 cannot find Iraq on the map, even though after the 2003 War in Iraq, you would think American younger generation will pay attention to global news, yet they don’t.

On the other hand only 14 percent of young Americans think that it’s necessary to learn a second language. Which brings us to the point that the younger generation in the U.S. don’t think out of the U.S.
