High School Kids Aren’t Reading - The Greatest Academic Decline in our History

September 3, 2018

We look at the greatest social shifts of the last 40 years. The cohabitation rate is through the ceiling. The male-to-female ratio has dropped like a rock. But, the greatest social shift is the academic decline in reading among high schoolers - a 75% decline in 25 years! Only 2% of Sophomores are reading, and 16% of seniors would read a book. Readers are leaders. And, Christians must be readers. Our Christian children must not get stuck in mass-diversion, minimal attention span culture. The flashing screens, the texting, the 14 second attention span isn’t going to work, especially if you are going to study God’s work and take it into your heart and mind.
