As schools are back in session, I tend to wonder what they are going to teach the kids this year. In the past 10 years or more the education system has failed society by not teaching the kids the three basic things they will need in life. I've seen high school and some college graduates that can't add and subtract simple problems, can't read but on a sixth-grade level, and can't write words that can be read.
The kids don't know how to use their brains anymore. I see every day that young adults can't add 10+10 without using a calculator. I know that the teachers can only do so much, but let's be realistic, these kids are our future. They are not taught respect, responsibility and patience.
The great generation is fading fast and I fear that the generation that is approaching will not be able to handle the problems that will hit them in the face. To be honest about them is they are too lazy. They have no strong willpower to do anything constructive.
