One of the main reasons comes from the fact that the teachers in his/her
elementary school used calculators.

Dave,

Someone is pulling your leg if they have gotten you to believe that the
reason they do not know their multiplication facts is because their
"teacher" used a calculator. The reason they do not know their
multiplication facts is because they looked for "excuses" not to learn
them.
Using calculators or any other machine does not prevent people from
learning. It is and always will be their own choice.
