My 8th grade butt was hit by a teacher going for the fences, with his baseball grip paddle with holes in it. Thanks Glenn, now I have to call my therapist.
You bring up an important topic, one which I will address in a separate thread, which is what I believe the future holds for us, via YOUNG minds of today.
For now, let me say, the research is just beginning, but the evidence is there, albeit anecdotal:
The 20 year old mind of today has been altered by SOCIAL MEDIA. In particular the RAS and the amygdala. More on a new post.
What did those teachers have to say about their students? Were they elementary or later? I think the generation entering college poses an existential threat when coupled with coming AI.
And I am serious.

Is Something I Learned While Reading "The Law of Success" By Napoleon Hill.
In a Chapter about Sales.
Dr Hill Calls The Reader "...Stupid. And "...An Idiot."
And Insults The 100's of Thousands of people he Trained for a Client. On How to Sell "Investment Securities."
ONE YOUNG MAN - Out-Sold Several 100,000 Trainees.
Napoleon Hill BERATES the Reader. AND all other trainees.
Because ONLY He Asked The Kid, "What are You doing?"
#1 Kid Said, "I Research What Each Prospect LIKES and Talk About That.
Listen. And The Prospect Sells Themselves. Insist on Buying "Securites."
I Over-Heard The Two Married Teachers Talking About TEACHING.
And Asked a Question About TEACHING.
From Home - for the last 20 years.
I Find Small Biz Owners with a Problem.
Research Them to Find Out ONE THING they Do to make Money.
Then Email with Ideas Equal to or Similar to Their FAVORITE Way of Making Money.
AND then Phone Them.
Every Time Getting To The Boss - with One Phone Call.
There are HUNDREDS of Books written
about "How to Get to The Boss."
I know this Cuz I have read Bunches of them.
Not one as Useful As The Story in The Back of "The Law of Success."
