Guess that tells us what to think about the UC system grads, right?

I heard reading is optional now too :-)

I know an inner-city kid who gets high 80s and 90s on his report card and I am happy for him. He took the SAT and I want a bright future for him. He is smart. But his command of the English language deserves a mark in the mid-70s.

God only knows what the kids who get mid-70s are like

why not just mail every college applicant a diploma before they attend college? Free tuitions, Free diplomas, then the3y can work in congress and get paid for doing nothing- heck- they don’t even have to show up for work- just send them a paycheck

Reading and writing will soon be optional for all classes as well.

I heard about 20 years ago that kids are coming to universities and colleges not ready for prime time. I know ppl who tutor these students. They probably cannot pass an ACT or SAT.

regardless of how many athletic scholarships and they did it in the past, “people of color” simply didn’t have the test scores , nor grades -this is just an attempt and degrees from these schools will now be devalued while praised by left

The public schools are NOT teaching grammar or pronunciation. I cringe while watching TV or listening to the radio. Their scripts are written out for them and the errors in grammar and pronunciation are HORRIBLE!!!! The English language is being butchered. It is like Ebonics for everyone!

“Wealthier students tend to take expensive prep courses...”

...yep. I was anticipating this BS. I’m sure they’ll continue their racist enrollment garbage of accepting 3 blacks to every 1 white though.

We are drifting from a merit-based society to a quota-based society. Not good at all.

The UC 4-year graduation rate for Blacks and Latinos is a sorry 55%.

The University believes the low rate is due to the fact that entering freshmen "don't feel they belong on campus."

The obvious answer, how could we have not seen it sooner, is to drop the SAT/ACT requirement.

It won't be long before the students who now feel they belong on campus become alienated.

This story is full of bull shit. You can buy an SAT prep workbook off of the internet for $15 and study all you want.

People who write crap like this are liars. It is almost impossible to get a god education in the inner cities because of the local cultures, mostly the local black culture.

Kids there do not want an education and then blame others when they fail to succeed. Then they have to find someone else to blame for their intentional failures and the failures of the democrat culture.

Yes, without fail these inner city cultures have been governed and constructed over many decades by democrats.

The dems built these failing cultures and they own them lock stock and barrel. They just need to own up to what they have created and stop blaming it on white conservatives.

Berkeley is filled with true Marxist SJW’s who want to reduce the place to a Bolshevik hell hole.

If you skipped a tattoo, your kid could take an SAT prep class. So many schools have after-school prep classes, online classes and sample tests that if you are motivated to study, it can happen.

I don’t like to judge by race but they do, which is ironic.

It’s not the race, it’s the culture.

The first college Open Enrollment policy that I know of was the City University of New York (CUNY) n the Fall of 1971. Anyone who wanted to enroll was told to “come on down.” Large numbers of students who couldn’t read a simple sentence took their classroom seats next to solid A students. The results were a disaster for all the students and thier professors. These schools added some remedial help within a year or so, but these institutions were never the same again.

It’s called the “Lori Loughlin ACT”. Give a bribe to the college, and your child is admitted.
