Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rushlimbaugh.com: “An Illustration of the Sad State of American Education”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

RUSH: I’m gonna mention something very briefly before I get into this so that I don’t forget it or move it to later. I saw something, I don’t know if it was Sunday or Monday, over the weekend. It was kind of a throwaway story. To me, it is a fundamental illustration of one of the problems we’ve got.

A U.K. Telegraph story. It was a survey of kids not in the U.K., here in the United States, between the ages of 16 and 24. Seventy percent had never heard of Mao Tse-tung.
