I coasted through my classes in high school and was woefully unprepared for college. My math and science capabilities were at the level they needed to be. However, my grammar and writing were sub par. High school has one track for college but that track is horribly preparing you for it. In florida, you learn specific parts to pass a pointless standardized tests. It's easy to blame the students but the system is flawed and most teachers don't give a fuck. I certainly don't blame them they have an important job and they get paid dirt for it.
