Chyna Faith Frey's insight:

This article examines data and statistics reguarding the success of High schools in preparing students for life ahead of them. It describes that students must be proficient in mathematics and English if they want to be able to compete.

It seems as though less than half of high school graduates are ready to take even entry level jobs due to lack of mplotyability skills. Those who enter college often must take remedial classes to suppliment what they missed out on high school and this comes at a great cost, money wise.

Minorities, low-income and students with disabilities are most likely to fall behind. They are much more likey than white students of decent income famililes to fall behind in education and thus, more likelyto be unsuccessful.

 

This is not good for anyone involved. On a national and global scale, this is why America is falling behind on the global work force.
