Generation Gap Updated

In case you were wondering, a writer for American School magazine gave a helpful guide to the way that generations break down these days. According to Kerry L. Roberts:

  • “Millenials’ pet peeves are unfair treatment, sarcasm, and condescending remarks.”
  • “Generation Xers’ pet peeves are stern lectures, clichés and jargon, and too many rules and practices.”
  • “Baby boomers’ pet peeves are unfriendliness, slackers, political correctness, and challenges to their authority.” (Speaking for myself as a member of this last cohort, I can say that she got it half right: the politically correct attitude of “neither servant nor master be” is very appealing.

Malcolm A. Kline is the Executive Director of Accuracy in Academia [1].
