In Oregon, young people are clearly putting off adult "maturity", even though they produce offspring, they have decided to also put off the responsibility to prepare their children for school. TV, entertainment, and self indulgence by parents in their own indulgences is having a deep affect on the school age generation. They lack discipline, direction, and observe "parents" who care very little about their own maturity, let alone that of their children.
Oregon is at the tip of the spear when it comes to cultural decline.
