Generation X vs. Generation Y Libraries

Elizabeth Davies Says school is a much different place for today’s students than it was for us Generation Xers. She runs through a “then and now” list. “‘Despite all those differences, there is one thing that looks all too familiar when I see school kids now: the fashion.

The oversized tops, leggings under skirts, ballet flats and colored denim jeans that you see in today’s classrooms could have been taken from my closet 20 years ago.

It’s ironic that the fashion statement seems to be the same. After all, that’s the one thing I would just as soon forget.”
