You're being way too easy on Orange County, Jack.

The teachers there virtually refuse to teach Algebra, yet 94% of Japanese and 40% of German high school students take CALCULUS!

They also have men teachers who understand calculus, whereas TIMSS proved beyond the shadow of any doubt that our mostly female teachers don't even know what algebra is.
