Walking To School A Lost Rite Of School Age Children

A fifth of children have no idea where they live – because they no longer walk to school.  Daily Mail UK.

When asked what they could see during their journey to school, the majority could not identify landmarks, instead picking up on houses and treees.

Would American children fare any better?  Kids nowadays seem to expect a ride to and from school.  Walking is something their parents or grandparents did.
