The Dumbing Down of America

My mom is a Reading Specialist. Last week she was helping a group of fourth graders read about the Statue of Liberty. One paragraph was about the tablet- it has the date July 4, 1776. Question one-- what's a tablet? Better question- what do you think the date July 4, 1776 signifies? Total silence. Then a kid raises his hand and guesses- is that the day we turn back the clocks?
