Twenty years ago teenagers were quite different from today, and Best Educational Degrees breaks down all categories to show the differences in teens from 1982 versus 2012.
Nowadays, the average teen walks around texting with a cell phone while listening to Katy Perry on the iPod. Rewind 20 years and teens would have been raving about E.T. and changing their cassettes from The Blackhearts to Olivia Newton-John.
The Best Educational Degrees infographic shows information comparing teenager’s education, taste in movies, career aspirations, marijuana use, sex and safety, diversity and more. In 1982, only 55% of kids used contraception versus today’s 81.5%, which means sex education in schools has paid off in the long run.
