According to this story, New York City's schools "graduate" students without being prepared for college.  The shocker isn't that--pretty much every school is guilty of that.  No, the shocker is that NYC schools are graduating students 80% of whom need intensive remediation in reading/writing and/or math to be able to function at a community college level. 

Something is fundamentally broken when you have figures like that, and a mayor whose newest "for the Greater Good" campaign is against someone destroying their own hearing through playing their music too loud over earbuds. 

And, given that not all students go to college...what's that say about the rest of New York City's public school "graduates?"  I strongly doubt it's any better.
