On YouTube I found this comment written by a resident of Europe (spellings and grammar were kept intact).
"Kellie Pickler thinks Europe is a country. Budapest? Hungary? She's never heard of these.
I wonder what she thinks about the whereabout of Germany, Italy, Spain, Luxemburg, Holland, Poland, Croatia, Bulgaria etc.
The peak of american education. She propably wouldn't be able to pass the 3rd grade here.
Moreover: there's an extra voice in the word Hun-ga-ry (hung'guh ree) contrary to hun-gry (hung'gree).
All I can say is this is something like the third thing that made me think, "As a homeschooling mother I had better ramp up our study of geography lest I raise a geography-ignorant child".
Actually before I could do anything intentional the kids got out the talking globe and starting playing with the 'find a continent' and 'find a country' games. That will suffice for this week.
On next week's agenda is to revisit how we're studying geography and kick it up a notch, as Emeril would say.
I do love Kellie Pickler but this was painful to watch. My children and I voted for her when she was on American Idol and I am glad she is having success with her published music. But this video killed me, to be honest.
