Of course, the article doesn't actually say that (causing me to question the op's reading skills). However, it is sad that so many kids aren't college-ready.

No wonder they pass so much ridiculously mindless legislation. The voters have no idea what the laws say. No large sodas? We wanted that? I thought it said we got free wifi. ****.

Yeah... gonna have to call bullshit on this one.

1 second on google and found this. I can not claim it is accurate nor inaccurate. (from Jan 2012)

Quote:
In its annual "Quality Counts" report released today, New York schools ranked third in the U.S., behind only Maryland and Massachusetts. In each of the six education indicators used for the rankings - chance for success; K-12 achievement; standards, assessments and accountability; teaching profession; school finance analysis; and transitions and alignment - education in New York met or exceeded the national average. Overall, New York received a "grade" of "B;" the national average was "C."
And then this. (From Jan 2011)

Quote:
Education Week, which publishes the annual "Quality Counts" guide, ranked New York State No. 2 in the nation in a comprehensive analysis of policy and performance with an overall grade of B. Maryland ranked first, with a grade of B+, and Massachusetts came in third with a B.
Now these are for NY state overall, but I find it hard to believe the rest of the state of NY could carry and raise the state average enough to overcome an 80% illiteracy rate in NYC.

Ok, so I sensationalized it....a little. The article does state "They had to re-learn basic skills — reading, writing and math."

that is in an effort to achieve college-readiness. Many/most of these kids can likely read; they just can't do it at a college level.

I serve on a committee that looks at college readiness in mathematics. Most kids can do some mathematics. Teasing out their readiness for college is entirely different.

One can be able to read and not be ready for community college. The thread title appears to demonstrate a clear lack of reading comprehension.

I ran into one of those math teases once. Bitch kept acting like she could do some math but she would never do any with me.
