If Education is the “Passport to the Future,” Then What Lies in the Future For Our Kids?

The following is an excerpt from an article I found on the blog Maywood Matters, which is written by Rhonda Sherrod, an education lawyer and Ph.D. recipient who lives in Maywood. This is an interesting read, you all should check it out:

“According to the 2012 Chicago Tribune High School Report Card presentation (and the State Board of Education), in the Spring of 2010*, a mere 1.6% of the juniors who took the ACT at Proviso East “scored high enough on at least three of the four parts of the ACT to be considered ‘college ready’ for key [college] freshman classes.”** (The data was “computed based on ACT scores for 97.4% of students taking the test” at the school.)”
