I certainly didn't learn anything whatsoever about the make up of the US at any level of schooling in Australia, and don't really see why anyone other than Americans should learn it in school.

In my class yesterday, I had a question "How many states are there in the USA?". Pretty much EVERYONE said either 52 or 51. I was like wtf?! So I asked them where they learned that and they all said their high school teachers. I know the Taiwanese education is bad but is it really this bad?
Does anyone have similar experiences? Or explanations as to why high schools teach the wrong amount of states? I'm really curious.

Not if you know what the Mason-Dixon Line is, then it's not weird at all, as it falls below that. Grief man, you're just digging your hole deeper.
Wow, they needed 4 years to draw a straight line on a map?
