Each generation has gotten smarter thanks, in part, to texting and the internet. Now read this before you have a **** fit = Schools often say that texting ruins peoples' writing skills, but it doesn't, people who hate to write and never write anything on their free time still text so, so like or not, they are still writing more than any other generation before simply because they are texting. And with the internet and other **** like that its just easier to obtain information now than it ever was before. And you may say that most people don't use the internet for info, but Im sure they have accidentally learned **** . Think about what it would be like without google. I feel dumber just thinking about it

Asking Google for Snookie's baby pictures is not the same as actually looking for information that has educational value.

And no, I don't mean typing your Physics problem into Google hoping you would find the answer instead of working for it.

It doesn't matter what you normally use the computer for, everyone has learned something useful from the internet. And there's no argument against that. Like I learned that there are a group of awkward homosexuals who call themselves "Bronies"

Have you seen what people search lately?   
Anyone with a question over a complex topic wants a simple solution.   
Research rarely happens outside of school papers or job reports.   
It's complete 						********					 that our generation has become smarter since the standards for education are so low.

Our standards are low? Im assuming youre around 20 years old or so, my nephew just started school and his teacher, that's been teaching for 30 years told us that everything he is learning right now, in Kindergarten, is what we were learning in the 2nd and 3rd grade. Everything is getting harder.

My old high school recently instated a new test that is "impossible to fail".
Standardized testing was bad before but it seems to me like the problem is getting so much worse.
I do believe you're right about the early levels of education becoming more difficult, but so far that's only elementary.

I also apologize for my rude remark earlier, I didn't exactly mean you in particular, I just meant the average high school student.

Oh well thankyou, that also depends on the region youre speaking of, East St. Louis High School near me makes it impossible to fail and never marks anyone absent so they can make as much money from the state as possible. But my school had some of the highest test scores in the area and we took all the gov-regulated tests.

Well I suppose you're one of the more fortunate ones.

Houston, Texas here.
My class of +1,000 students dropped down to a little over 600 in the first two years.
What's worse is that my school wasn't bad in comparison to some of the surrounding areas.

if you were shooting for witty, you missed the mark by a few yards

I just felt like being an ass

Hey, I made a valid point up there, you people don't agree, Im going to assume you are the morons of my generation.

You actually think that you're the pinnacle of human intelligence? How pathetic...
#241 to #240 - putridgrim (01/30/2013) [-]
Definitely not, but I tend to look into things before I pass the ideas on, just like the original I comment I made. I was also rather polite until the blatant criticism came instead of people trying to make a valid argument

Texting may be getting people to write, but it is also getting them used to writing without proper grammar.
U r awsum ;) - Is not proper grammar.
You're awesome - Is proper grammar.
Texting does ruin people's writing skills.
#180 to #178 - putridgrim (01/30/2013) [-]
Well, for the people who generally never write its better than nothing. They may suck ass at it, but they still develop meager writing skills. Either way we've been gettting smarter
