Wait! These are supposed to be the future leaders of the world, yet…they’re in college….and think TV host Judith “Judge Judy” Sheindlin sits on the Supreme Court, according to a recent study. 10% of college students.
The study — commissioned by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni in late August 2015 — found college grads lacked basic knowledge on all branches of government.
Based on 1,000 interviews nationwide, 47 percent of graduates couldn’t identify the term lengths for members of Congress. Nearly 40 percent didn’t know that the US Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war.
We. Are. In. Trouble.
Be Just and Fear Not
