Truth.  And it's pathetic.  I see things on a daily basis written by people who are COLLEGE GRADUATES who write on about a fourth grade level.

Not true.

I studied Latin and Greek roots all throughout middle school and high school as well.

And that is because teachers are expected to do way too many other things than TEACH academics.

I started off in Community College after a couple year break after being burned out from AP and honors classes in high and middle school. The first history class I took the teacher asked how many students had never written an essay before and half the class raised their hands. Holy shit!!! I had been writing that crap since 7th or 8th grade and was a pro at BSing them too. They had never written one EVER? WTF is wrong here??

 As I reread my post I'm hoping you understood that is should have said..teachers are expected to do many other things than teach academics.  Its pathetic really that it falls to teachers to pick up parents failures.  I don't know how teachers get it all done.  They do the very best they can with extemely limited amount of time they can teach a subject area.
