Not an easy ride at school
Placeholder Image
A recent study released by a Washington think tank says school is too easy for most kids in the United States, failing to challenge them and leaving them bored. The Center for American Progress analyzed all sorts of data and concluded that “the broad swath of American students are not as engaged as much in their schoolwork” because they find the curriculum too easy. That might be true, but judging from the way students wear their pants low, their hats backwards and say “like” and “ you know” every three or four words, some people might doubt that we’re raising a generation of Einsteins.
