Hah, I remember seeing on TV, some American lady was asked how many states canada has. She answered something like 43, and her little kid said "Canada doesn't have states, it has provinces and territories!"

This is not new at all. Now of course ever since Geography was never a required course for basic studies, it's quite logical for Americans to not know the specific locations of various countries.

And too often geography is taught as "where is Warsaw?" "Where is New York?"
That's the most insignificant part of geography.
It's much deeper than that. It's the relationships between places, between people and places/environment, the spatial distribution and cause, creating thematic maps, finding out which areas are most likely to breed a certain type of disease... etc etc.
