Knewton recently published a new infographic “The Unprepared Nation: College Readiness Today,” which takes a close look at college readiness among high school graduates in the U.S. Some interesting statistics from the infographic include:
- One-third of college students need remediation and half of these students will not obtain a college degree
- The unemployment rate skyrockets with fewer credentials or degrees
- Only one-fourth of high-school graduates passed college readiness benchmarks in science, math, reading and english, and
- High school teachers and college instructors have differing views in college readiness.
