    Default on-level public school education

    Hi there,

    I have a sentence which I don't understand, could anyone help me:

    "The majority of kids who had an on-level public school education will be able to finish this grammar worksheets."

    What is on-level in this sentence?

    Thank you for your kind help.

    It doesn't read like a native speaker to me- it should be these grammar worksheets and kids seems a bit out of place in the sentence. I assume it means something like of a reasonable standard/satisfactory, but haven't come across the usage.
