1 in 5 Oklahoma Students Can’t tell time

A new study shows that only 1-in-10 Oklahoma City kids ages 6-12 own a watch. And only 1-in-5 know how to read it. “Yeah, I was super surprised,” said Caitlin Carnes, who works for the Boys & Girls Club at Santa Fe South Elementary. “They all have cell phones and tablets so they don’t have to look at a clock very often that’s analog.” Children rotated through three stations in the gym, making their own clocks, solving time problems and reading analog clocks. The Boys & Girls Clubs partnered with DiscountWatchStore.com to give each participant a special, time-teaching analog watch once the special session ended. More than 150 students took the time-telling survey, which featured 15 questions. Only 31 students passed. Only 15 earned perfect scores.
