29 Things Millennials And Gen Z Wish Boomers Understood
“School is much harder. In high school, both of my parents only required one algebra class to graduate. Today, I needed Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry to graduate, and another math class if you plan on going to college.”
“With exception to Latin, everything my dad studied as an honor student in the ’60s I studied as a non-honors student in the ’00s. He also didn’t start writing multi-page essays (7+ pages) until college. I started writing those in eighth grade.
School was significantly easier back then because there was no expectation for most of the students. After graduation, the majority of the boys joined the service, learned a trade, and got a job. The majority of the women got married, had kids, and if they did work, it was something menial that required very little training. That’s not the case anymore.”
