    These kids have been surfacing in higher education for the past 7 to 10 years. Totally focused on the test. Oblivious to learning for learning's sake. Curious only about whether it will be on the test.

    I taught at a major land grant business school for 20+ years. I saw the subtle change in student attitudes. I retired (early) 2 years ago to try to make a difference some other way.

    That future nightmare is already here.
