College Ready? Not So Much, Says Tribune.


"Eight of 10 public high school juniors in Illinois weren't considered ready for college classes in all subjects based on ACT testing last spring -- and many students missed the mark even at posh suburban Chicago schools... DuPage, Lake and north Cook students did best when it came to meeting all benchmarks, while south Cook and Chicago Public Schools did the worst. At some CPS schools no students met all four benchmarks; district wide 7.2 percent met them and at the top peforming school, Northside College Prepatory, 78.8 percent of juniors met all benchmarks last spring."
