Only one in four college-bound high school graduates is adequately prepared for college-level English, reading, math and science, according to report released Wednesday by the ACT college admissions test.
Some 28 percent of the members of the high school class of 2011 failed to meet readiness benchmarks in any of the four core subject areas.
