I don't think the kids a dumb. They aren't being taught like we were 50 or more years ago. They really made you learn the multiplication tables. Now the kids are lost with out a calculator. That modern math they came out with years ago was a bust. They didn't care what the answer was, just how you got it. 2+2 took a whole page. I have a granddaughter that made straight A's in school. She knows nothing about US history or geography. If you went out on the street and ask people who won the Civil War how many do you think could tell you? If the teachers took the AST test with out studying for it, how many would pass?
