Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that only 1 in 4 students in the Oklahoma public school system know that George Washington was the first president of the United States?

The survey was conducted by the Oklahoma Council on Public Affairs. One thousand students were asked 10 questions taken from the US Citizenship Test and the answers, including the one above, are revealing: only 3 percent of the students would’ve passed the US Citizenship Test.

Yikes. No child left behind? In Oklahoma, it sounds like most of them have been left behind. I hope that changes.
