it’s a fucking tragedy honestly that the most failed class at my university is math 111 and that is absolutely an issue stemming from capitalism, let me explain:
the first math class you get actual credit for at the university is math 111, or college algebra, any math class before this class you must pay to take but you do not receive credit for it.
so people will jump over the lower level math classes in favor of math 111 because they don’t want to pay for a class they aren’t getting credit for
but the thing about that is: they’re in no way prepared for math 111 and subsequently fail the course they took because they didn’t want to pay for something they wouldn’t get credit for…
and in the end… pay for something they didn’t get credit for.
