When we look at the numbers, the challenge is clear.
We must take action for our kids now.
Nearly 40% of Marin’s graduating seniors did not meet the state defined ‘a-g’ requirements necessary for college.
When you dig deeper into the same data, the reality for economically disadvantaged students, the lack of college readiness becomes even more grim.
Almost 75% of socio-economically disadvantaged students who graduated failed to meet these standards. For African American and Hispanic/Latino graduates the number was almost 70% compared to only 25% for White graduates.
