Link WOW, I couldn't believe it, 1 of 4 Japanese kids couldn't place N Korea on a Map. Granted it would be half the US ones, but 25% of Japanese kids seems a lot higher than I would have guessed. And 40% couldn't place the US. I am scared to see how bad the US kids would be if this is how the Japanese ones are. I can only venture to guess that this is a decline for them. I know there was talk of a Geography push in the US, but am not aware of any results yet, and haven't sought out any either. Granted I am sure their testing is twice as good on average than in the US. Spent 3 years in and out of Japan while in the Armed Forces, Loved it too!
