The American Geographical Society (AGS) needs your help in a matter of vital importance. We are conducting a nationwide survey of public attitudes toward geography and knowledge about geography. This is our part in a major study funded by the National Science Foundation. This “Roadmap” project is a joint effort of the National Geographic Society, the National Council for Geographic Education, the Association of American Geographers, and AGS. The overall topic is geographic literacy, a matter of serious concern in America today. We invite all U. S. citizens and long term residents of the United States to take the survey. The only eligibility requirement is that you must be age 18 or older. The results will help guide Federal and state policies regarding geographic education.
You may access the survey online by clicking the following link: AGS Geographic Knowledge and Values Survey (If the link does not take you directly to the survey, please copy and paste this URL into your web browser: http://webteach.ubalt.edu/UltimateSurvey/Surveys/TakeSurvey.aspx?s=F30154FD158241D39265B445E3BD5817 ).
Based on trial runs, we estimate the survey will take 12 to 18 minutes of your time. Please help us spread the word by forwarding this invitation by every possible means: email, Internet, listserves, newspaper, radio, TV, social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), and personal appearances (clubs, local to national groups, public events, etc.).
