Kids These Days: A new survey came out that says high-school students want harder work to do and to be challenged more by their teachers.

Apparently 9 out of 10 kids surveyed would work harder if they were expected to, and more than two-thirds don't think that their high schools set high enough standards. Oh, and they seem to like the high-stakes graduation tests.

I don't know what to make of this. I was in high school 10 years ago, and none of my friends complained that we didn't have enough to do. Maybe that's indicative of the crowd I was hanging around -- or maybe my friends just didn't want me to know.

Well, kids, good for you. Just be careful what you ask for.
