    CHICAGO (CBS) — It was a hot topic in Thursday’s mayoral debate: how community college students are dropping out in droves because they are not prepared for higher learning.

    It’s a real concern at City Colleges of Chicago, CBS 2’s Kristyn Hartman reports.

    The City Colleges lose more than 50 percent of their degree-seeking students in their first 15 credit hours — some out of frustration because they have to play catch up.

    English instructor Kamilah Sanders says some of her students who completed K-12 can’t put a sentence together.

    “It blew my mind that these students had gone to high school,” she says.
    They wind up in remediation — courses designed to bring them to college level. But some of the final-exam material seems oriented to grade-schoolers.

    “So many students are not college-ready,” concedes Cheryl Hyman, chancellor of City Colleges of Chicago.

    Sanders says students have told her all they had to do in high school was show up and they would be passed. That makes her angry, she says.

    Well if LA RAZA's hand picked Gery Chico wants to take credit for the dumbing down of Chicago's Public School kids, who am I to argue.:lol:
