    These students would kick the asses of most American counterparts, many of whom could not identify, or spell, their own state.

    I bet very few people in the US could name the UK provences and their locations. I know I couldn’t, but yet we make fun of them not knowing our states.

      Very few people in the US could name the American states and their locations. I am guilty of being one who would have a problem with it as I never had to learn it in school.

      Canada has Provinces, the UK has counties and countries.

    Our habit of putting Alaska on the bottom of our maps is rather confusing. And all those states with “New” this or “New” that – horribly confusing. I grew up in “New Something”. It was so confusing I never knew it.
