If not Liberia, Japan is my 2nd choice.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

RE: Where Is It?
All are good guesses, but I am afraid none are correct.

(I am not sure if "none" should use the singular verb "is," but I used "are" because I was referring to multiple guesses. I hope that is correct grammar.)

Yes, Anita! Very good.

Once again I used the most recent Lincoln Herald for this information. The total number of schools in Mexico that are named for Lincoln is not given.

Gracias Roger!

As for the grammar question, yes you used it correctly. I looked it up! Use a plural verb with none when what it is referring back to is more than one of whatever is indicated.

Statues of Lincoln are found in parks throughout Mexico–particularly in major cities such as Tijuana, Juarez, Guadalajara, and Mexico City –and many schools are named after him. The reason he is honored in Mexico as perhaps the most respected US president is that he opposed the Mexican-American War as a Congressman, and supported Mexico’s fight against European occupation forces in the 1860's as President. And in the United States, statues of Mexican president Benito Juarez are in some cities, including San Diego. The two presidents shared a mutual goal of making Mexico and the USA good neighbors.

The book Abraham Lincoln and Mexico, by Michael Hogan, examines his legacy and identifies many of the sites honoring Lincoln throughout the country.
