Education Decline

 

 

 

BADLY PREPARED FRESHMEN

 
Memphis

"...colleges and universities admit underprepared students in order to collect their tuition, the pressure is on to give them passing grades ...."

"Many college students are unprepared for the rigors of higher education. Growing numbers cannot read, write or compute proficiently and have, at best, only a weak grasp of basic historical and cultural information"

"students now coming to college have almost no desire to learn, to know and understand things outside their narrow vocational interest."

"According to a UCLA survey, 40 percent of each freshman class is 'disengaged' from educational values and pursuits. Students are inattentive, easily bored and unwilling to work hard, especially on difficult or abstract material outside their interests."


Daly

But "donít blame ... teachers whose administration has already cut the academic rigor out of their curricula and told them, in effect, that they cannot fail anyone."
