Oklahoma kids don’t know how to read clocks…

8:09 AM EDT on March 21, 2017

It's time to bring Flavor Flav to Oklahoma and educate our children.

A week or two ago, my KFOR buddy Lorne Fultonberg decided to pile on Oklahoma students and out them for not being able to read analog clocks. I guess it's just another thing that Oklahoma students have in common with Governor Fallin.


They may miss that hour of sleep, but as we turn our clocks ahead, chances are kids won't be changing their watches.

That's because the vast majority don't have a watch.

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, and they don't know how to change the ink in a typewriter or address an envelope either. Big deal. First of all. I doubt the parents of these kids know how to read a clock either. Second, if being able to read an analog clock ever again becomes an essential life skill, knowing what time it is should be the least of your concerns. Stick with digital. It's easier.
