Another major problem for many kids is remembering the stuff they learn in school. A lot of what is called education is simply memorizing. This is changing somewhat. Teachers are starting to realize that the amount of information is so huge, expanding so rapidly, and changing so fast, that memorization isn’t nearly as important as they used to think. It’s much more important now to be able to find the facts when you need them, use them, and forget them. However, you do have to be able to remember how to do that.
