Isn’t this the best way to gather data! I was posting some V-Day signs on the doors of Anthon 102 for Dodie today and found a couple of hand-outs left behind in the room.
“More than 75 percent of the students taking pre-college courses have been out of high school for 4 or more years.” Older students = 48,442. Recent HS graduates (within 3 years) = 14,160.
Most high school graduates head to college: 70-75% (in 2005) enter a higher ed institution within 2 years of graduating. Enroll into Community and Technical Colleges = 37%. Enroll out of state = 8%. Enroll in WA Baccalaureate institutions = 21%.
“But nearly half coming to the CTC system are not prepared in math.” Students taking pre-college math = 47%. Students taking pre-college writing = 19%. Students taking pre-college reading = 10%.
