She'll be fine. Her problem will only show up after college when she tries to pay off her student loans with a barista's salary.

When she gets to college, typically will she be tested on algebra? And if she doesn't show competence, will she be required to re-take it? If so, we should focus on her pre-algebra and algebra skills.
