An article in The Chicago Sun-Times discusses the large proportion of high school graduates who are underprepared for college-level work: http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/5189336-417/college-can-be-a-rude-remedial-awakening.html

The number is stagnating; hundreds of thousands of high school students are graduating unprepared for the rigors of college, many of which have a 3.0 Grade Point Average.  According to U.S. Department of Education statistics, in 2008, an estimated 44 percent of students under 25 at a public two-year college and 27 percent of all students under 25 at public four-year schools were taking at least one remedial course.

What do you believe are some strategies to better preparing our young people for post-secondary education?
