I was watching Oprah the other day and it was mentioned that most American teenagers could not name the first 5 Presidents of the United States. Could this be true?I'm Canadian and I can do it, but that would be giving away the answer

i will be the first and embarrassed American to admit i can not name them without looking it up. history was not a strong subject for me in high school.

Well I thought I could but then I wasn't sure so I double checked my information. I had 4 out of 5 right. I had the sixth one in the wrong spot but I did know them just had the order wrong. Thing is I remember back in school they didn't stress learning the order or the names after the first couple. Yes there was stressing with a few at major points like Lincoln but for the most part they skipped over it.
