Schools Remove Analog Clocks Because Kids Can’t Read Them

In a world that runs on time, soon we might not see it run on analog time. NBC is reporting that kids in England are having a hard time telling what time it is on an analog clock.


In London, schools are removing analog clocks from classrooms because students are unable to read the time. The teachers union says children are so used to using digital devices that they aren’t familiar with analog clocks. The decision was made to remove them after it was determined that they caused “unnecessary stress” during exams.


But it looks like we are having the same problem here in the U.S.
