Less Than 40% of H.S. Seniors Academically Prepared For College


Less than 40 percent of high school seniors in America have sufficient academic skills in math and reading to pass entry-level college courses, according to a groundbreaking report released Wednesday by the National Center for Education Statistics.
Thirty-nine percent of 12th-grade students have the mathematics skills and 38 percent the reading skills needed for entry-level college courses,” stated the report, which was the first to compare student scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to college course requirements.
