Lower SAT scores for class of 2011

A new study shows that American high school students' SAT scores are down an average of 18 points from 2006.  Who is to blame?  Students?  Teachers?  Parents?  ...Facebook?

Brooke Baldwin is joined by James Montoya from the College Board, which administers the test and conducted the study.

    Sadly, with less homework, more emphasis on extracur.ricular activities, and no discipline at home or in the classroom, this is the result. This will con.tinue to allow more fore.ign students to be admit.ted to universities supported with OUR tax dollars, and our slide in international standings will only ac.celerate. But, buy them the next iGadget, parents!

    sat scores are lower becase they are dumb and not good. what is the point of a test that has no conection with real life? maybe if we taught life skills instead of stupid stuff like algebra and triganometry that we never use we could teach people occupational skills and our economy would be better and we would be more competitive. we dont need dumb tests to tell us if we are doing good or not why dont we just stop doing dumb tests
