Introduction
Geography is by far the most neglected discipline in America's educational system. It is the only one out of nine recognized core subjects that receives no federal funding, and many educators are unaware that geography is more than memorizing state capitals. Perhaps this is why a quarter of Americans cannot find their own country on a physical map of the world. How can we understand trade with China, or the historical westward expansion of the United States, or many other worldly issues without geographic knowledge? America is facing a crisis in geo-literacy! Speak up for geography on your campus today so that we can fix this crisis one step at a time!
