Kids today are not as clever as they were 30 years ago.

And, *surprise surprise*, they think it’s due to over-testing which has led schools to move away from developing understanding in order to reach their targets for exams. And how due children prepare for exams? By cramming information into their heads, which they spew out on exam day and quickly forget.

‘Tis just another reason why we homeschool.
