On the 4th of July NPR tweeted the Declaration of Independence

Some ill educated Americans didn't recognise the words and thought it was inciting revolution and one example of why the radio station should be defunded.

When I lived and taught in America, the pupils in my school memorised the Declaration in 7th Grade.

Don't all Americans know the words?

They taught the Magna Carter in my school in the US as well, the significance of it at any rate.
