Question:Not just I but a lot of my friends who travel extensively to the US feel that most Americans have very limited general knowledge and some of the statements they make just amazes us. We have even noticed most dont even know the Capital city of their own Country. You ask an average American as to what is the capital of India - 99 out of 100 ( leaving aside the Indians who have settled down in the US ) will have no idea ( Its New Delhi - by the way ). Why dont the schools emphasise on General Knowledge as a serious part of the studies in school. It is only a few who travel a lot come out with some answers but look dazed when you ask them some questions which even a child in India could answer. This question is not meant to offend anyone but just out of curiosity. From what I have noticed most Americans live in a "closed" concept where they just know about their own surroundings and the moment you start discussing other things - they are stumped. Why is this so?

Answers:I concur, to a certain extent, that many Americans are not as well educated as they could be. I think that part of the problem is just plain laziness. I am an American, so I am not proud of this idea...but I think that, to some degree, it has the ring of truth. But you know what- it's not just Americans. 70 percent of the people on this planet earth are illiterate. Did you know that? Although there are some Americans who are not so well educated, some of us are. It's a matter of choice. Most people have intelligent brains, but when it comes to putting them to good use, we falter. I think that, peradventure, education systems elsewhere may have superior qualities when contrasted with America's system. Our standards could be loftier. Personally, I am primarily self-educated. I do not have a college degree (albeit, I have taken over a year of college courses in the past), but I love education, learning, and knowledge. There are solutions. We Americans just need to stop being lazy, and place higher standards of excellence for ourselves. One aspect that I think it neglected in our educational system is Geography. As you very well articulated in your example of the capital of India, many Americans are not erudite in terms of geographical matters- and I think that we should be.
