104. definitely a decline---a parent at one of DC's most prestigious private schools told me
that it's a rare student at the school who DOESN'T have a tutor. When I went there, NO ONE had a tutor.

I also taught private school students for 16 yrs. and the percentage of students with learning problems is rising precipitously. I attribute this to a lack of parental rules and guidance in the home, too much computer and video game time, and not enough reading. Even parents who are home do not know what their kids are doing on the computer, nor do they bother to check up. :crazy:
