My son told me that he saw this on the game show "The Weakest Link" A rap singer was one of the contestants. When asked "What is 3 x 4?", he did not know the answer. I was dumb-founded.... how can an adult, educated in our public school systems not know the answer to a question that every 2nd or 3rd grader should know? Don't answer that.... I'm afraid I already know why..... And this is the type of person that some of our kids look up to?
