I covered another math class on Friday.
The teacher was giving a test.
I’ve seen kids write “I don’t know” or “I don’t get this” when they couldn’t answer a problem.
Apparently that was too much work for a large number of kids in this class. They had a whole page with IDK filled into each problem.
I’m not sure whether to be more disturbed at the lack of connection these kids had, or the fact that it was such a common or trendy experience for them that it had been reduced to an acronym.
