According to GMA on ABC, people need to know that we established our independence in 1976 from Great Britain. Apparently, several of those surveyed were unable to correctly answer the year or country.
I saw that report - was kind of taken aback by it. Sure there will always be people that don't know everything, but isn't that a simple piece of education to remember? Even if you don't care about it, wouldn't it still be embedded in your brain? I would think it would.
