When I moved to California during high school, I was shocked by the fact that no one knew math. I’m not exaggerating very much. The students, even in higher math had no grasp of the fundamentals. The teachers had no idea how to teach math (with one exception).
The state of math education in the US, especially California, is dismal. this site links to essays by people more qualified than me who feel the same.
