college is so easy these days, i think it would be disingenuous to say a kid isn't "college material"
wow, too easy, that is not good, it's been 31 yrs since I was on a college campus, so I guess things have changed.
Honestly, high school was too easy and I was told college would test my intellect more. It doesn't. Its boring and easy.
I wish more teachers used the Socratic Method than lecture lecture lecture.
