The Slide to ignorance and darkness::British schools are removing analog clocks from classrooms because kids can't read them

I'm stunned.  I can already see next year's headline "Schools remove books because students can't read them."
Schools in the United Kingdom are beginning to remove analog clocks from the classroom — because students are complaining that they can’t read them, reports say.

Officials have begun replacing the traditional clocks with digital ones as children have been unable to tell the correct time on analog clocks, The Telegraph reports.

“The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders in England, told the publication. “Nearly everything they’ve got is digital so youngsters are just exposed to time being given digitally everywhere.”
I learned to tell time from a clock....because I learned it in school.

What kind of shitty, pathetic, stupid and uncaring teachers are there in the UK?
