I think we are doing them a tremendous disservice because, when they graduate and walk out the door, we expect them to be "responsible adults" who get a job, show up to work on time, treat their bosses and fellow workers with respect, and do a diligent job at performing their tasks. Our public schools seem to be doing everything they can to achieve the opposite results.
They've been saying this for fifty years, if not more. Is this true? Is it more true than it was before? Do you have any evidence this is true or is it just "darned kids today"?
