You clearly have yet to understand what it means to attend public school in the ghetto.
I don't know whether that explanation holds any weight in a generalization, but I know at my undergrad I've come across individuals whose parents emphasize education, who they themselves emphasize education, who are struggling significantly to keep up because they were poorly prepared in K-12 for the rigor of my undergrad.
I'm sorry but did these same individuals suggest that the reason they struggled "significantly to keep up" in said undergrad was because they were "poorly prepared in K-12 for the rigor" or are you coming to such deductions on your own?
I'd be interested to know how such conversation came about.
