How ignorant are we and why?

I heard today that 26% of Americans do not even know who America gained its independence from. I think parents and teachers have really missed the mark on their responsibility as educators. The Revolutionary War should be a well-known subject to all Americans, but I guess since it is a positive and patriotic issue, many (not all) educators choose to stick to the so-called negative aspects within American history. Pretty pathetic.

P.S. the answer is Great Britain
