ACT tests show most minority students not college ready
from Urban Milwaukee
ACT scores for Milwaukee Public Schools students rose slightly for the 2013-2014 school year, but black and Hispanic students still lag behind, and the vast majority are not adequately prepared for college, according to new data released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Three-quarters of MPS students who took the ACT last year tested "below college ready" in English and 90 percent weren't ready for college-level math, according to new data released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The ACT college readiness benchmarks are the scores students need to have a 75 percent chance to get a C or above in college-level math and English courses.
