Yes, they should know

But, I wonder how many really do know the correct answers to these "100 Facts Every High School Graduate Should Know"?

What do you think?

Do you know the answers? Go here to see.

A sample of five:

How many pounds in a ton?

Non-fiction means that it’s true or that it’s false?

A constellation is what?

In New York City the shortest day of the year occurs around what date?
