You hit many pointed heads

with the post. We are about the same age. I attended public school; had one teacher per grade; and was held accountable at home. Bad grades equaled no sports; I never had to worry about the Coach benching me for poor grades. Act up in the neighborhod; be late from school or for dinner -- very specific motivation.

Commencing at age 16, I had a part time job. While in college, I had part time jobs to supplement the GI Bill.

College was courtesy of the GI Bill. Grad School was after work and paid for by my employer.

You don't achieve success if you are unwilling to pay the price. And part of that price is involved, accountable parents.
