  •  I hate that it's ok to be bad in math (4.00)
    but unacceptable to be illiterate.

    I actually think that students would be much better in fractions if they did more of home economics tpe activities in school again.  If you cook or build something and have to up or down scale it, you learn the skill pretty fast.  If you read a useless story problem in a book that the student doesn't care about, they won't bother to worry about learning, because they will assume that it won't impact their lives.
