    In NY State, or NYC? There is a difference. It is a well known fact that most urban public school systems are severely lacking. That does not indict the entire public school system in the state or country of the same deficiencies.

    US public education is failing on a global standard. But it doesnt matter, forget it.

    That isn't true though. It is failing in respect to the top echelon of countries in education, but not on a global standard. Personally, I find it troubling that we lag behind such countries as France, but that is hardly a global standard. You are leaving out plenty of countries in that assessment.

    Currently, Pre Calc is the flaming garbage can I'm willingly tossing my cash into. I have to take it as a requirement for Calc I @ my college. The first half of my Pre Calc course in 10th grade was just an Algebra 2 refresher.
