It Would Be Great If. . .

. . . students came to college knowing

A) that Latin America, Europe and Africa are not countries;

B) the difference between a novel, an article, a poem, and a play;

C) that the United States did not exist in the 8th century;

D) that Jesus did not predate Moses, and Prophet Mohammad did not predate either of them.

This is not too much to ask, is it?

P.S. Right after I posted this, I read in a student's final exam that Latin America is a city. After this, students who at least grant it the status of an entire country sound like geniuses.
