    75 Percent of Oklahoma Students Can't Name the First President - News9.com - Oklahoma City, OK - News, Weather, Video and Sports |

    Only one in four Oklahoma public high school students can name the first President of the United States, according to a survey released today.

    The survey was commissioned by the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs in observance of Constitution Day on Thursday.

    The Oklahoma City-based group enlisted national research firm, Strategic Vision, to access students' basic civic knowledge.

    Brandon Dutcher is with the conservative think tank and said the organization wanted to find out how much civic knowledge Oklahoma high school students know.

    I didn't think any state could be dumber than Texas and South Carolina (based on the people I talk to from those states on the phone at my job), but I guess I was wrong. Wow!

    I'm really hoping this is somehow false, or at least exaggerated. I'm well aware of some of the stupidity and ignorance out there, but this would actually shock me.

    September 2009 Volume 16 Number 9 - Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs


    Something doesn't smell right with this. You want me to believe that they asked 1000 students and no one, not one of the thousand got more than 7 right?? Only 6 out of 1000 got 7 right. There will always be the obligatory nerd whose parent educated him outside as well as in school. When 20 people answer Michael Jackson ( 2%) to one of the questions, you have to wonder whether it was administered seriously or as a joke that is now being used to bash the entire state.....

    Well, considering the genes which will be passed on if they don't - you better start hoping that they DO.
