As an employee in an administrative office of a postsecondary educational institution (Impressed yet? HA! I work in the records office of a small college) I have multiple opportunities on a daily basis to view the best and worst of the next generation. There is a sense of entitlement with these teens that appalls and amazes me. I can’t help but wonder how they came to be so rude and self-centered. It’s scary really.
Then today this article fell into my lap (or my computer actually) via a blog post from the amazing Cecily. It’s nice to see that people are beginning to see this as a problem and uncovering the cause. I realize that this may not be an instant fix, but at least a few are admitting that there is a problem.
