Rudeness ascribed to parental failure.

The Chicago Tribune reports that college instructors at the Northern Illinois University find college students ruder and disrespectful than they were years ago.

 

They ascribe rudeness to technology distractions and to the failure of parents to instill good manners in their children.

 

Interestingly, some instructors found parents more obnoxious than the students in some cases.
