Have you ever read something that just stuns the living daylights out of you? This morning, during my normal news perusal, I ran across an article titled What High Schoolers Don't Know by Bonnie Goldstein. After reading the article, I was just completely flabbergasted. I would even go as far to say that I was at a loss for words- which for me, is a major accomplishment. If there is nothing else you read today, I urge you to read the study on which this blog and referenced articles are based.
