The Kids of the US Today Lack the Drive that their Predecessors had Before Them.
By Chad Rhodes August 7, 2017
The kids of the US today lack the drive that their predecessors had before them. The kids are too busy burying their faces in phones, iPad, computers and not their studies. Eating twinkies and cupcakes as they play with their video game or watch TV shows is not educational. It’s leaving a world of couch potatoes, while other countries sail past the US in math, science and technology.
I agree with the experts on this one, it all starts with the parents. It does not matter if you are a single parent or not. We all know the statistics on both sides of the fence.
- The ball starts in your court not the teachers.
- If your kids are in the group of kids who are falling behind maybe you need to kick up your game and help your kids or find someone who can.
Which ever it is no more excuses. These kids need help and if we don’t help them now the students learning capabilities will be diminished.
All you Parents on welfare and assistance should have the smartest kids on the block. You are home all day to help them with theirs studies. You know how to find http://www.youtube.com so have them watch math videos instead of games.
Don’t let them spend the rest of their lives in a hole. Help them out and give them the tools they need to succeed in life. You can do it. Start them from a very young age and you will succeed!!!.
For the past 20 years we have seen a rapid decline of intelligence in our children. Kids no longer have to use cursive hand writing, no longer required to take PE classes, failing the basic math and science classes. The schools try to teach them, but they can only get a handful of students to respond to them when they are trying to teach. The classroom in some schools are dumping grounds for the kids. Babysitter for the day. The test scores don’t lie.
As we have witnessed in 2017 is that we have LOAFERS in our schools and we are not talking shoes!!! Some think they should be handed these funds on a silver platter with no GPA required and no repayment of their student loans. The stories go on about how our students who we hope to lead our country one day are idiots. There are very few of these college grads who are working and succeeding today.
What the technology world has done to an already spoiled nation has now created it’s own beast of loafing welfare mongers. Don’t Help your kid become dumb as a rock by sitting in front of the TV watching shows or playing video games.
U.S. students’ academic achievement still lags that of their peers in many other countries
How do U.S. students compare with their peers around the world? Recently released data from international math and science assessments indicate that U.S. students continue to rank around the middle of the pack, and behind many other advanced industrial nations.
One of the biggest cross-national tests is the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which every three years measures reading ability, math and science literacy and other key skills among 15-year-olds in dozens of developed and developing countries. The most recent PISA results, from 2015, placed the U.S. an unimpressive 38thout of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which sponsors the PISA initiative, the U.S. ranked 30th in math and 19th in science.
Younger American students fare somewhat better on a similar cross-national assessment, the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study. That study, known as TIMSS, has tested students in grades four and eight every four years since 1995. In the most recent tests, from 2015, 10 countries (out of 48 total) had statistically higher average fourth-grade math scores than the U.S., while seven countries had higher average science scores. In the eighth-grade tests, seven out of 37 countries had statistically higher average math scores than the U.S., and seven had higher science scores. Read The FULL ARTICLE
