Cynthia Williams's insight:

I had no idea what geography was until I took a course in college.  That is a sad commentary on the American education system. Why is geography missing from our school curriculum?

Geo isn't widely taught at public schools and many schools do not get funding for Geography departments. This link promotes Geo in public schools and tells us why Geo is import. Enjoy!
