Double Down On Dumb
University Students Are Struggling To Read Entire Books
During a brief foray between my science classes and into taking a few business classes, I ran across a student who on her first day of hearing she had to learn about graphs in our Intro To Microeconomics class went into a meltdown. She threw her writing implement across her desk and yelled, "Graphs?" She clearly didn't expect any math in her major of business administration.
It didn't take me long to realize I wasn't a good fit for the business administration curriculum and I decided to stick with science.
That was years ago, but now they're whining about reading books?
Oh, we're in so much trouble.
