because when they were young they were stupid themselves. I was. :D

Seriously though, kids are getting dumber in my country, education standards wise, now they are taught to pass exams by rote rather than learn to think for themselves as often as not, it's entirely well shit to be frank. Most kids these days can't multiply 20x13 without a calculator. That bites.

Also some universities are claiming that many people coming through there doors are just not up to scratch, and need classes to catch up, this is not the responsibility of Unis but colleges, if they are failing to educate the youngens then it is behoven on the system to make them better able to attempt further education, not to waste time trying to leg up under achievers, whatever the reason.
