Two unrelated reports came out recently. One, from the Council on Foreign Relations, said American children in grades K – 12 are not well educated enough to compete with youngsters from many other nations. The other, from Pew Internet & American Life Project, reports that the number of texts sent by those teenagers who do text rose to 60 a day. That is up from 50 a day just two years ago. The habit hardly leaves time to read a book or solve a math problem.
