150 Stupid Teenagers

October 30, 2008

Yeah.. back to the news.

Did you think about that todays teenagers seem to be worse than like 20 years ago.. that they seem to be more stupid? You might have the right feeling. 

Professor Michael Shayer of King’s College London has made studies about how 800 teenagers perform in problem-solving tests. And his study show that todays teenagers are dumbing down and are in lack of deeper understanding.

When it comes to higher levels of understanding , the pupils are less successful today than 20 years ago. The focus today is more on reacting quickly – but no deeper thoughts.. it’s more a shallow level.  The professor estimates that the teenagers are two years more stupid now than 20 years ago.. which means todays 14-year-olds are more like the 12-year-olds back then!!
