[quote][/quote]The questions are mostly very easy. A breakdown is given that suggests youger people fare better, but black people are much worse on some questions - enough to suggest a major problem in US education. Could black people be more subject to science-deniers?
It's a pity - especially as it's a Pew survey - that no results for other countries are shown.
You probably need to take the test yourself to see the US results.
