21. Part Of The Problem

is that kids don't read at all anymore. I don't even remember where I learned about the Holocaust. We read Diary of Anne Frank in 6th grade. I THINK we had it in school, but I could remember falsely. I was a voracious reader and picked up a lot outside of school. I know we covered WW2 many times in Jr. High and High School.

Another odd issue that I discovered was when several of us in my family did DNA testing. It came out that my niece knew next to nothing about genetics. Because she went to the same high school that my sister and I went to, and we had a very good genetics unit, I asked her way she didn't know anything. She said that she didn't remember studying it and if they had she probably wouldn't have believed it. I was floored. It's science. Science progresses, but not believing science you learn in school in the 2000s? She's a millennial, and I had to wonder if all millennials don't believe what they learn in school. I mean, there's healthy skepticism and then there's not believing how cells divide.
