While about 80% of Massachusetts high-school graduates attend college, 37% who do so may be ill-prepared and require college remedial courses, according to a report released jointly by the Massachusetts Department of Education and the Board of Higher Education. "This reports what we've known anecdotally for some time, and that is there are certain groups of students that, despite our best efforts, are still not graduating from high school ready to pursue college-level work immediately," said a spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education.
