http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/newly-discovered-eighth-grade-exam-from-1912-shows-how-dumbed-down-america-has-become I don't know about how I feel about this. I think some of the questions could simply have been more important around that time than they are today, but it does seem to be asking them to remember a lot more. But maybe it's a comprehensive test. Anyway, some of the points the author makes: - we pass everyone regardless of level - we teach to lower standards - some complaining about the youth of today I don't know if I fully agree with everything the author states. What do you guys think? Has America become dumbed down over the generations.
