I was surprised to learn that in the required course on Government every student in US (in High School) has to learn about legal rules and how police gets authoirty to commit searches of poeple of cars and how the police can arrest someone without a warrant also.

Indian schools only teach about who are leaders and that we must vote in elections so that they can rule us :-)
