Random blog posts about research into political communication, how people learn or don't learn from the media, why it all matters, and other stuff that interests me.

Thank You, Canada
We often see studies pointing out how lousy the knowledge is of American students -- how much kids know about health, science, history, or in this case geography. Well, thanks to Canada, we don't have to feel too bad. This article outlines what Canadian kids don't know about geography and while sad, it's also somewhat comforting. My favorite? The kid who'd been to Spain but couldn't point to it on a map.
