Oklahoma City Study Finds Kids Can't Read Clocks

First cursive and now clocks. Both were things that were once a normal part of learning for children, but that kids today have a tough time doing. A new study of more than 150 students ages six to 12 in Oklahoma City found that only 20 percent of them knew how to read a clock. Caitlin Carnes, who works for the Boys & Girls Club at an area elementary school, explained to local TV station KFOR why many children today don't have that skill: "I think the exposure to technology, everyone's so used to seeing digital. They all have cell phones and tablets so they don't have to look at a clock very often that's analog." Carnes is working to teach kids in the after-school program how to read clocks, and just like more elementary schools are bringing back teaching cursive, they might want to consider adding instruction on how to read a clock.
