The general consensus is that American kids are getting dumber.

I think the likes of MTV and rap music is jading our opinion of young 'uns in this country and for the most part, education is at its pinnacle. Thoughts?

Posh Boy is at his pinnacle!

Math baffles Beckham:
England soccer captain David Beckham confessed he is befuddled by his 6-year-old son Brooklyn's math homework in an interview with The Mail newspaper Sunday.

Beckham, 30, admitted to being baffled when Brooklyn recently asked for help with a school assignment and had to turn to his former Spice Girls pop star wife Victoria to help out.

``Their homework is so hard these days. I sat down with Brooklyn the other day -- and I was like, `Victoria, maybe you should do the homework tonight.'

``I think it was math, actually. It's done totally differently to what I was teached when I was at school, and you know, I was like, `Oh my God, I can't do this.'

'Brooklyn was like, `Please do it with me,' and I'm like, 'I'll read your book with you.' ''

The Real Madrid midfielder's son attends the exclusive Runnymede College in the Spanish capital, which follows the British national curriculum.

The Mail on Sunday gave examples of some national curriculum math questions for 7-year-olds.

They include: ''Bet went to the shop at 11:45. She came back half an hour later. What time did she come back?'' and ``What is 12 divided by three?''
