I remember when I attended high school, the guidance counselor proclaimed that anyone who was a C student should NEVER consider pursuing any type of tertiary education as it is beyond their intellectual comprehension. It was her assertion that only A and B students should attend college and/or pursue further tertiary education.

This is so true. So many teachers, educators, and guidance counselors consider anyone not an honor student to be totally subpar academically. Such students are not highly esteemed and are considered to be totally lacking.
She considered anyone who earned less than a B average totally remedial to say the least. In the 12th grade, we are assigned to see her. She informed the C students not to even try college but to go to work or pursue a nonacademic traineeship.
The C students in my high school were not encouraged to attend college, they were told that college was beneath them. However, many did not listen to the guidance counselor and pursued further education. One in particular has 3 Ph.Ds.
