Math Remediation

The Math Chique passed this information on to me.
It seems that our schools are failing in the areas that will rule our future economy.

Maybe city-college is the answer for many.
I live in a town of 100,00 that has no city college. The percentage of Blacks with an associates degree or higher is just 6.7%. But the local refineries now require such a certificate for their 100k+ yr. jobs.
My hometown (was about 100k when I was in school now about 3ook) has a city college with close to 20,000 students. The percentage of Blacks with an associates degree or more was 68%.

Seeing that many children graduate with skills that are less than those of fifty years ago - it seems that No Child left many behind.

I don't think No Chile is the problem.

Who knew 20 years ago our children would need more PC skills?

Yeah you're right, that's weak:-)
