I've only watched the first episode so far, and I'll watch the rest. But I am so dismayed about your frustration with the community college culture. My husband was a music teacher in a CC, and realized that these kids just need a little more discipline, a bit more maturity and maybe a different leader than the parents could provide. He also knew that if you go to a CC, and then are more mature to handle the stresses of a full University, he may have changed the trajectory of an entire family.
When my daughter was graduating from high school, my state was in a huge recession and my income dropped by over 50%. She had to go to a local CC while all her friends went to University. I told her that she was a little too social, and had not gotten good enough grades, nor had any athletic or musical talent to get a scholarship. But, not to worry, most of her friends would be back and going to CC after their first year.
And they were. She is a very successful news journalist now. Many kids just need to mature and catch up a bit, before they tackle the strain of discipline without parents.
I feel so bad for these kids! They have bad parents, a bleak life, bad education....BUT, athletic talent. This is the ONLY way for them to not repeat the sins of their fathers.
