That is the theory, the reality is somewhat different.

I spent a good part of my last six years (before I retired) as an educator

who had not yet mastered the single digit operations tables ... Hell!
Fractions might as well have been rocket science for them. Our department
was called "Student Support Services (current Vermont PC-speak for 'Special
Ed') and my boss finally said "enough ... the buck stops here." He and I
developed a curriculum to bring these guys back up to grade level and we
did, but it wasn't easy.
