Interesting quote - RonO's Ramblings

Nov. 14th, 2006 08:52 am Interesting quote

This morning, while reading an article in the Albuquerque Journal, about how Three-Quarters of Albuquerque Public Schools Graduates who attend Central New Mexico Community Collage take remedial courses (article here, subscription or log in required), I came across an interesting quote:

But the study also found that, among APS graduates who complete Algebra II in their senior year, about 32 percent— fewer than a third— were prepared for college-level math.

What I find interesting is that in a sentence discussing poor math skills, the writer felt it was important to point out that 32% is less then one-third.

Maybe the explanation was for the other 68% of his readers ;)
