This used to drive me crazy growing up. It’s even worse now than it was in the 60s and 70s.

I was lucky. Even though neither of my parents graduated college (mom went for 2 years, but then they got married) they made sure I studied and got good grades. I didn’t go right out of high school, but I did eventually get an AS in math and a BS and an MS in Computer Science.
