As if you didn’t have enough reasons to put on sackcloth and ashes when it comes to today’s college students…
The American Council of Trustees and Alumni released the results of a new “Constitution Day” survey that found college graduates know shockingly little about our system of government:
According to the study, nearly 10% of college graduates think Judith Sheindlin — commonly known as Judge Judy — is on the Supreme Court; one-third of college graduates can’t identify the Bill of Rights as a name given to a group of Constitutional amendments; and 32% believe that Representative John Boehner is the current president of the U.S. Senate. Shockingly, 46% of college grads don’t know the election cycle — six years for senators, two years for representatives.
Only 18% of America’s colleges and universities require students to take a course in American history or government.
It’s more depressing when it comes to the general public’s knowledge, if that’s even possible.
Read the release and the study.
