The article "2txt? Or Nt 2txt" by Garrison Keillor, talks about how guys are losing there social skills due to texting and email. The article also states that girls social skills are still thriving with the assistance of email an texting. The reason for this is that girls bring a more warmth and friendly feeling to conversations, while boys are more standoffish. I do not think that this is true because I find have no problems talking to people in person. Being an avid texter I should know.
Today's society depends on verbal communication and to succeed in this world you need to exercise conversations with others. If boys lose their social skills then they will become less attentive in school and that will lead to more boys failing.
This article matters to education because although school is becoming more electronic, you still need good social skills in order to thrive. This article also matters to society because without social skills you cannot meet and have good relationships with people. This is a national problem because other countries do not have the same problem.
The human race has always relied on social interaction and will continue to do so for many years to come. Since we have a while before talking in person will no longer be necessary, men should try putting down the phone and chat to someone in person.
