I agree 100%..... The courses we teach in high school are enough! Why is it that people have this need to know everything by age 14?? What is the big rush? My fifth grader already knows algebra! Tom Wagner is correct....as we approach age 50, who cares one lick that we "gained" a year somewhere back around age 17?
