Just half of high school graduates are prepared to do the sort of reading of
complex texts that is typically required in the first year of college or
upon entering the work force, ACT says in a new
<http://www.act.org/path/policy/pdf/reading_report.pdf> report. The testing
service found that only 51 percent of the 1.2 million students who took the
ACT in 2005 met its "college readiness" standard, and that students seem
actually to be going backwards: More students are on track to do
college-level reading in the 8th and 10 grades than are actually ready to do
so by graduation time.
