American Students Don’t Know U.S. History, Basic Facts

From Campus Reform:

A recent “abysmal” ACTA survey cited in the report found that only 20 percent of respondents identified James Madison as the Father of the Constitution, 40 percent of graduates didn’t know Congress has the power to declare war, and 9.6 percent thought that Judge Judy was on the Supreme Court.

The problem, the report says, is that universities don’t place a high enough priority on studying American history or government.
