That’s what another series of reports from the Commission for Higher Education has shown since the state started tracking data on the college-readiness of its students six years ago.
In 2011 — the most recent year available — 41 percent of Indiana high school seniors who graduated from public schools with the state’s required “college preparatory” diploma, known as Core 40, had to take at least one remedial course after enrolling at a state-supported college.
Gov. Mike Pence made college readiness one of his top priorities when taking office last January. With his leadership, the state must raise high school graduation standards.
