I recently read a blog post from DoSomthing.org entitled 11 Facts About Education in America. The eleventh fact stated:
“High schools are not preparing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel after graduation. Only 1 in 4 high school students graduate college-ready in the four core subjects of English, reading, math, and science.”
Has our education system become an exercise in sciolism as it continues to churn out ill-prepared graduates? And how less prepared are the growing percentage of those who never graduate? Hmm, something to ponder.
