Today’s highly interesting read (03/09/22): American Children Losing Motivation and Creativity, Teachers say

Today’s read is from Jackson Elliott who reports on small-town America for The Epoch Times. Here’s an excerpt:

American children are less creative and less motivated than past generations. When teachers compare today’s children with their peers from only a few years ago, there’s a clear difference, according to Page Park, an Indiana teacher with 24 years of experience.

“They don’t know how to think for themselves, too. I do have a few kids that are really good at problem solving, but not as many. They’re not good at problem solving,” she said.

Other teachers in different states have seen a similar change. Theresa, a teacher in New York, said that her students also seem to lack creativity and motivation.

“I thought, all I have to do is just show up every day and do my very best, and I can inspire these kids. I can change your life. Every teacher thinks that,” she said. “But what I started to see was the students, they were not inspired, no matter what I or my fellow teachers did.”
