Things like they don't know how to write cursive. They can't remember time with out cell phones, They have never bought, played a vinyl record, they have no clue who general westmoreland is, etc.
Matt, that's nothing...ask the average High School graduate today,...
Which came first WWII, or the Vietnam War?
Which country/counties, was the United States fighting in WWII?
On what continent are those countries located?
Who is the current Vice-President of the United States?
Is Peru located in South America, or Europe?
Here's a map, show me Greenland.
The average H.S. graduate today, would fail to answer most of those questions.
