LONDON (Fox 32 News) - Some British schools are removing old-school clocks because students cannot read them.

Yes, we're talking about clocks with a "face" and "hands." 

“The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), told The Telegraph. “They are used to seeing a digital representation of time on their phone, on their computer."

He said that having to figure out what time it is using an analog clock might be too stressful during exam time.
