What I most remember learning in high school is what boobs felt like.

Sorry you couldn't be bothered to read a textbook while you had no other responsibilities for a year, scholarship winner.

What do you learn in high school that you need to know for college?  Math?  Math helps, and I was shocked just how badly my fellow engineering students sucked at algebra.  Throw a variable into the equation (that they couldn't just plug into a calculator, because it was the dark ages and our calculators didn't run Mathematica (or whatever the cool kids are using) and they were as lost as liberal arts majors.

The real issue is that it sounds like they never learned to make themselves study.  Too bad, you'll have to learn fast (I still can't force myself to do math without a test coming up, so don't look to tips from me).

Anybody know if going to community college can make it harder to get into a "good" school (assuming you get the appropriate grades)?  I'd assume for the reasonably good "big state school" it would help, and if you have to learn the basics, that type of thing might be ideal.  Probably cost less to learn what you needed in high school plus intro college.

Other disciplines have it easy.  Just read the textbook.  Especially at the high school and early college levels.

when people used to say, "I didn't really learn anything" I would think "Oh, come on!"  After listening to MAGAts for the past six years, I realize I was wrong to doubt them.

my American HS experience was that, if you weren't bound for college you were not learning anything new. it was Pete and repeat from elementary school. academics taking honors courses were not my fellow students. I would have done a hell of a lot better if I had been allowed to attend Vo-Tech but God and my parents forbid I actually got some training I could use after graduation.
