HOW can a person graduate HS and NOT be ready for college?
In some cases it's because the schools are too focused on "fluff" courses and not the basics like reading and writing, basic math and algebra, history, etc. In some cases it is because the parents are not engaged enough with their kids lives to pay attention to their school performance. In still other cases, the parents are always at odd with the school and teachers because their "precious snowflakes" can do no wrong.

Great observation. I have yet to meet a successful young person who doesn't credit his parents for their involvement in his/her education!

I failed to mention one more item. In some cases the kids are just not that bright.

I understand in many cases the student does not perform because their parents really don't have a clue. Some parents set the bar for their kids as low as it can go, like telling their kids to graduate from school. Well we all know that would require "D" average.

However if a student knows they want to go to college they should know the course they need and the grades needed to be accepted to a college and graduate from same.

Anyone going for a college degree should be very aware os what it takes to get there and pass the grade.

BTW, their knowledge of college should include the cost of their desired college and how they will pay for it, not relying on the taxpayer to pay for THEIR education.

You're talking about mythical Dojo Dollars here. So it can be whatever the low information, no integrity poster wants it to be. But good luck trying to spend it at Cub Foods or your local car dealership. Maybe he/she/it can use it to gleefully pay taxes.
Or maybe, the money could be spent on a water and mold remediation in his mom's basement. Psychedelic reactions to different fungi could explain a lot of the slewchebag's postings.

Since you have none, according to your logic, you're as smart as nothing/zero.... Pretty dumb perspective, but it's YOURS.
