Most of that ignorance can be found in the voting lists of the Demokrats."The more I read and the more I listen, the more apparent it is that our society suffers from an alarming degree of public ignorance," O'Connor said.
That ignorance starts in the earliest years of a child's schooling, she said, but often continues all the way through college and graduate school.
O'Connor argued that learning about citizenship is just as important for American children as learning multiplication or how to write their names.
"We have to ensure that our citizens are well informed and prepared to face tough challenges," she said. "If there is a single child not learning about civics or not being exposed to what they must do as citizens, then all our lives are poorer for that."
To combat what she sees as a dangerous lack of civics in schools, O'Connor founded icivics.org, a website for educators and students. The site uses games, lesson plans and activities to make learning about government and citizenship less boring.

Demokrats love ignorance, and their destruction of our schools, their dislike of America breeds ignorance.
Ignorance is vital to the Demokrats survival as a party. It's what allows them to push their Socialist agenda "FORWARD", for Socialism is attractive to the intellectually lazy (ignorant)... and the parasitic.
The Demokrats should have as their slogan... CHANGE... Through Ignorance!
