that article was a worthwhile read. and i do disagree with your light allegation that the article set "identifying a location on a map" as a benchmark for college education. i do believe that i am capable of doing well all those items that the article mentioned. finally, i'm in the top 20% of something!!what's your degree in? i spent that and more on my degree. by the way, a big part of it was spent on learning to identify a location on a map.
Oh, of course, if you want to be precise, the article never set that as a benchmark, merely used it as an example of the "intermedate skills" of which students in college are capable. At least that's one skill I had before college. My degree is International Languages - French, German, and Spanish. Maps are certainly important to your field, less technically to mine too.
good point, Sharon. i humbly retract my inaccurate comment.
