I blame the spiral curriculum. Instead of teaching skills to mastery, we cram too much into each school year. Students didn´t master it? Don´t worry they´ll get again next year. The problem is when students don´t master a concept, they B.S. their way through that unit (It was fractions for me!) every year. Also, the emphasis in K-12 is turning in assignments and picking up extra credit when college grades rely more on assessment scores. But don´t worry they´ll get it again next year!
