Not to mention, expecting 6 year olds to manage their own time in a standardized test! When I was in school, they told us NOT to look at the clock during tests (we COULD read the clock, if need be ; ) and the teacher would announce "10 more minutes" "5 more minutes" "2 more minutes" and "pencils down" - and that was all. No other constant clock glancing.

Same here. What a strange world we live in. Things feel so topsy turvy. I wonder if all "older" generations feel like this?

Yeah. I taught my kids both. They all wear analog watches anyway. So the schools decision does not make sense, just an opportunity to waste tax dollars.
