    “one of the functions of our educational system is to make sure that the fast kids graduate pretty much at the same time as the slower ones.”
    And that doesn’t even address the fact that in a lot of schools the fast are supposed to act as TAs and coach the slow ones. Just another reason why the American education system, which used to be one of the finest on the planet, is now such a cesspool of dysfunction, political posturing, inappropriate goals, featherbedding, and corruption.

        Which results?
