They Know Where They're Going

I know the perception is that education in the U. S. is slipping, on the skids, declining.  Apparently that is not true in every aspect.  The average geography score for fourth-graders was higher in 2010 than in 1994 and 2001.  Fourth-graders!  Do not play Trivial Pursuit with these tiny people, they will wipe the floor - or should I say map? - with you.
Scores:
1994 206
2001 208
2010 213
