A shocking new report revealed that only three of 13,000 Camden, New Jersey students were colllege ready.
EAG News reported:

Paymon Rouhanifard, the new superintendent of the troubled Camden, New Jersey school district, said he experienced a “kick-in-the-stomach” moment when he recently learned that only three students who took the SAT test in the 2011-12 school year scored “college ready,” according to ABC News.

That says more about the people who have been running the school district and teaching the classes than it does about the many students who scored poorly on the test.

Camden, with an enrollment of about 13,000 students, is clearly a school district that needs to take a hard look at its priorities.
