In this day and age yes ignorance is a choice.

Anytime I don't know something I research it online.

About some things. Everyone can't know everything about everything though.

Choice. One can only know so much and must choose what they care to learn about. Thats not necessarily a bad thing, because we literally can’t know everything.

Of course it is. We live in a world of infinite knowledge. Anything you want to learn about, you can.

I don’t know.

If you aren’t knowledgeable about something you could always Google it but in this day and age no one can agree on what a reliable source is. So basically you’re considered ignorant no matter what you do.

After a certain age, yes. Like 16 to 17.

No, we can’t. There’s little to be done about the things we don’t know we don’t know, but other than that, I believe ignorance is a choice.

It depends on the situation. 

If you dont know something and there is no reason for you to know it than it really isnt a choice. For example I learnt recently that Puerto Rico is part of the US. 

I am not from the US, have never travelled to the US, and have no actual education about the US. It wasnt really a choice that I didnt know it because besides stumbling upon the information there was no way I would even know to make it up

There are times where it is a choice. Like when you are told the truth and ignore it
