Core Curriculum anyone?

The new issue of the Dartmouth Review is out. It includes the full text of the Review’s interviews with newly elected trustees Peter Robinson and Todd Zywicki. In addition, the Review reports on an unscientific survey it conducted to test Dartmouth students’ basic knowledge about western civilization. Less than half of the students surveyed knew that Gutenberg invented the printing press; less than half knew who wrote Don Quixote; less than a twenty percent knew who wrote Democracy in America; only ten percent could name the four American presidents who were assassinated.
