Respecting Your Elders

Schools in New York are teaching students how to relate to older generations. This is a class in New York public schools.

According to the curriculum, you don’t call elderly people “seniors.” You call them “older adults.” And you don’t think of older people as evil just because they’re older. Like the Evil Queen in Snow White or Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty. And you don’t assume that an older person has a fragile body. In some exercises, students are shown videos of elderly people doing exercises that even the teens themselves cannot do. Take that whippersnapper!

This course is being offered in the economics curriculum. It’s not a terrible idea given that teenagers today will live in a world with more elderly people than ever before due to the Birthgap.
