    I can't seem to put my two cents in....3rd try....If the EDUCATORS would FOCUS, i.e. CONCENTRATE on making sure pre, K, 1-3 learned everything presented, the rest would be a cakewalk. SEPARATE boys and girls...YES, THEY DO DISTRACT EACH OTHER. Boys need a little different teaching, too. HOW LONG IS IT GOING TO BE BEFORE YOU GET THIS? College isn't the place for remedial reading and math...if they weren't smart enough to get this in 12 years of school WE THE TAXPAYER should not be paying for college.
