You're assuming I said every school in the nation. The question was have I encountered it at every school I've taught at and the answer is yes. I never said it was every school in the nation so you're stretching a bit. Clearly there are top ranking schools that have brilliant students. Are you going to even attempt to fix the problem or are you going to perpetuate it? I've no idea what you're arguing anymore because you're going off on a tangent.
