Yesterday, Bruce, KD8APB, and I held another one-day Tech class. This time, however, only eight out of ten passed the test.
The two that failed, were a teenager and his grandmother. I was afraid that this might happen. Teenagers just don’t seem to do very well with this format.
I think part of the problem is that because the training is so intense, the students really have to stay focused. Kids, being kids, are not usually that focused. I’d be interested in hearing from any of you out there who have had more experience with teenagers.
