According to the results of a survey published this week by Geographic Kids magazine, one in five British children are unable to pinpoint the UK on a map of the world. In addition, one in ten children cannot name a continent. Several children were unaware that London was the UK capital and many London kids were unaware that they lived in the capital! Most children didn’t know where the US was situated and couldn’t identify Iraq. The results of the survey were described by a professor as, “rather frightening” and “underlining the need for education to concentrate on the essentials."
