To be fair, a lot of people I know don't know where Finland, Sweden, and Norway are or what they are. I'm from the U.S. Hell, people here think Africa is a country.
Every time I think the quality of basic education in the US couldn’t surprise me anymore, it does that anyway.
I understand not being able to point out the exact location of a country that you aren’t very familiar with but not knowing what they are/that they exist is a whole another low. And I don’t blame people for not knowing things like that, I think it says more about how America centered the education there must be. To me it seems that you are mostly thought only American history and Geography, which seems absurd to me.
Of course I do not live in the US so my views on what the education in your country is like cannot be 100% accurate, but based on everything I have seen on the good old internet or heard from my mom who used to go to school in America I don’t think I’m completely wrong either. But feel free to continue this conversation if you think I’ve said something inaccurate!
