Schools Are Getting Rid Of Analog Clocks Because Students Can't Read Them

posted by @JoshMRadio - 

If school teaches you one thing, it's how to read a clock.  After all, most of us spent half the school day staring at the clock on the wall.  But that era may be over, as more and more schools are ditching analog clocks - because students don't know how to read them.

According to the London Telegraph, a number of schools in the UK are replacing analog clocks with digital ones.  Some teachers say students were having trouble taking their exams in time because they couldn't read the clocks.

But other educators think reading an analog clock teaches kids valuable math lessons like fractions or counting by fives.

Is there any reason to still have analog clocks?  Do you still have one at home?
