Recently I checked the ap-calculus Discussion and found four fascinating messages by Jeff Stuart, posted on 20-21 Jan 2012. The first message is at.

Stuart provides a glimpse of the grim reality of the level of pseudo-education that so many students continue to receive, many of whom have taken so-called honors courses in high school.

Heather M. says:
Schools (and parents) have pushed to get more and more kids into honors courses as more and more kids have been pushed into going to college. Some of these kids are deserving kids who just wouldn't have been given the chance in previous years, but some are kids who actually just aren't all that smart and are being pushed beyond what they can naturally do. In the end, of course, they can't do it.
