ACT: Third of high school grads not college ready

childThere are 10,000 ways to put spin on this but the bottom line is teachers are not teaching and parents are not parenting.

‘…The ACT  reported that 31 percent of all high school graduates tested were not   ready for any college coursework requiring English, science, math or  reading  skills. The other 69 percent of test takers met at least one of  the four  subject-area standards….’

Does not say much for standards at High School. No wonder teachers are fighting a life and death struggle against evaluations. It is their voting block that will keep any form of standards from becoming a reality in the political arena.

Any wonder the average inmate has a 6th grade education.
