My kids have computer class in jr high. Last week they were handed a printout of an html page to display a table.

They typed the text from the page into their chromebooks. The teacher gave no context, didn’t explain what html is or what it’s for, didn’t even tell them what it stood for.

Even when we do try to teach them modern things, we do it so poorly and with such unqualified instruction that the time is effectively wasted.

15 years ago I taught English in China, mostly to 3rd and 4th graders. You should see the math kids that age are doing.
