It's a common thing that I see, I even saw this question pop up in a picture on facebook with the claim that 93% get it wrong. I don't know how true that is, but I know that order of operations questions are quite popular. I personally feel that mathematics is poorly taught to students because a large number of those that are really good with math can make bigger money elsewhere, leaving numerous secondary and primary math teachers that aren't on the same level. Here in NY, you need to have a masters degree to teach, and the starting pay is horrible. I don't know many people that would be thrilled with going to college for 6 years to start with a salary of 37,500
