Is High School Too Easy?
A national report calls for more rigor in high school programs to
develop students’ critical-thinking skills and to prepare them for college and
careers. The report questions whether high school is “tough enough”
and cites the high percentages of students who require college remediation and
a dearth of high-level math courses in some 3,000 high schools as a major
barrier to postsecondary success. It is a good overview of this issue. (Bangor
