Child the World: Map Mural Improves Grades and Decor
(ARA) - Recent studies have shown that most
Americans, and particularly students, do poorly in geography. In fact, one study
indicated that one out of seven Americans cannot locate the United States on a

assistance of the U.S. Department of Defense and continues to update the map
yearly with the help of the CIA and Department of State. The map contains an
abundance of detail, including land elevations, ocean depths, shipping-lanes and

High School in Charlotte, N. C. As chairperson of the Social Studies department,
she's purchased several of the maps for her school district. She adds, "Even a
student who has difficulty pointing out the locations of major countries can't
