Britain is “dimming down,” a new survey shows. From the Daily Mail:
The intellectual ability of the country’s cleverest youngsters has declined radically, almost certainly due to the rise of TV and computer games and over-testing in schools.
The ‘high-level thinking’ skills of 14-year-olds are now on a par with those of 12-year-olds in 1976.
However, more students are earning top grades on national exams due to “dimming down,” a researcher said.
