Ooopsie...

It's worth noting that, while a startling number of the students assessed got the question wrong, the majority — 54 per cent — did accurately answer that the commonality between the governments of Canada, France and Australia is that "They have constitutions that limit their power."

And, let's not forget "civics" (the in-depth study of US and world governments) is not done in great detail until high school, usually the tenth grade year.

But let's not let something as silly as perspective get in the way of a good story!
