America: ignorant

Only 25% of Americans can name more than one of the 1st Amendment freedoms, and only .1% of Americans can name all five, according to a recent telephone survey. And recall that another study found that 36% of highschool students thought newspapers should have to get government approval before publishing a story.

We really need some sort of class where students learn about the Constitution.

*Blogger's Note - I had written .001%, stupidly. I would like to think I would have corrected this on my own, but a commenter brought it to my attention.
