New info released today shows that only 38% of seniors who took the ACT test were proficient enough in math, science, reading and English to survive in college.  This coming from an educational system that spends more per student than any country in the world.

 

So, if our students are not ready for the next level why are they being pushed through like cattle?  We are only compounding the overall problem with a less educated and skilled potential employee.  Oh, I know big brother will take care of you don’t worry.  The problem is everyone who is proficient in math, science and reading, are taking care and paying for those who aren't.
